Amanda Knox Goes Free After Winning Murder Appeal
University of Washington student Amanda Knox is finally free after years of proclaiming her innocence.
Almost two years after she was convicted of the brutal 2007 murder of her roommate, an Italian appeals court overturned her conviction on Monday. Amanda who had been studying in Perugia, Italy when she was arrested was facing 26 years in prison, but has now been released on an appeal which stemmed from problems with the DNA evidence in the case.
Amanda’s ex-boyfriend and co-defendant, Raffaele Sollecito, who had also been convicted of the killing and sentenced to 25 years in prison is also set to be released.
