Murder of Meredith Kercher: Could Knox be Freed?

A British university exchange student Meredith Kercher was sexually assaulted and stabbed in Perugia, Italy on November 1, 2007.


Along with Rudy Guede, a resident of Perugia, Amanda Knox, a U.S. student and a housemate of Kercher, and Raffaele Sollecito, an Italian student have been held responsible for Kercher's tragic death.


While Guede is now serving a reduced sentence of 16 years, Knox and Sollecito were given sentences of 26 and 25 years respectively. However, the initial guilty verdicts on Knox and Sollecito have been controversial and disputed by their families and supporters.
