After 11 hours of deliberation, an Italian jury overturned the conviction of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito in the murder of Meredith Kircher, Knox’s former roommate. Knox testified in her own defense in the appeal (which is allowed in Italy; the appellate court can revisit the facts). She told the eight-member jury, in Italian, “I’m not a promiscuous vamp. I’m not violent … I have not killed, I have not raped, I was not there, I was not present.”
Congratulations to Knox, who is now free to sell the movie rights.
