Verdict looms in Amanda Knox sex-murder retrial

UPDATE: Amanda Knox Found Guilty in sex-murder retrial

American Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend face their fourth verdict in six years for the murder and sexual assault of a British student brutally killed in the Italian city of Perugia in 2007.

Knox has been in the United States ever since an appeal court acquitted her and lover Raffaele Sollecito in 2011 of the murder Meredith Kercher, who was found partially naked in a pool of blood in the house she shared with Knox.

She has not returned to Italy because says she fears being “wrongly convicted”.

The pair’s acquittals were overturned by the supreme court in 2013, which accused the appeal judge who freed them of “a rare mix of violation of the law and illogicality” and criticised the approach taken to DNA evidence and witnesses.

The case was sent to a retrial in Florence, where a verdict is expected on Thursday.
