Express. Co. UK | No Amanda Knox DNA’ at Meredith Kercher murder scene

By: Cyril Dixon | Published: Tue, October 1, 2013

ITALIAN police found “not a single trace” of Amanda Knox’s DNA in the bedroom where British student Meredith Kercher was found murdered, her retrial heard yesterday.

Forensic officers found only samples from the African man convicted of the stabbing, the appeal against Knox’s acquittal was told.

Giulia Bongiorno, defence lawyer for Knox’s ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, said the couple could not have killed Meredith, 21, without leaving large amounts of DNA. She told the Florence hearing that police found a tiny trace of her client’s DNA, on the murdered woman’s bra, and none of Knox’s.

Miss Bongiorno told the court: “How is it possible to find traces of Guede in enormous quantities but not a single trace of Amanda?”

The Guardian | Amanda Knox retrial: mafia gangster claims brother was killer

Retrial for murder of Meredith Kercher hears gangster say her dead brother killed Briton during burglary gone wrong

Tom Kington in Rome | The Guardian, Friday 4 October 2013 12.28 BST

The new trial of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito for the murder of the British student Meredith Kercher took a surreal turn on Friday when a convicted mafia gangster told the court that her brother was responsible for the death in 2007.

{Snipped}

As such, her evidence on Friday was considered a formality rather than a real part of the new trial, the judge, Alessandro Nencini, said. Bongiorno called the appearance irrelevant.

Amanda Knox retrial takes supernatural turn

By Graham Winch
updated 12:58 PM EDT, Fri October 04, 2013

•Knox is facing her third retrial in Italy for allegedly killing a British exchange student in 2007
•An ex-gangster testifies in Knox's retrial that a séance told her where the murder weapon is located


Amanda Knox’s retrial took a bizarre turn Friday as an ex-gangster testified that a séance told her the murder weapon used to kill British exchange student Meredith Kercher in 2007 is still buried in a garden in Perugia, Italy, near the scene of the alleged slaying.

~Snipped~

Convicted gangster Lucia (formerly Luciano) Aviello, who is undergoing gender reassignment therapy, testified Friday that her brother, Antonio Aviello, killed Kercher.

~Snipped~

Aviello first testified about her brother being the real murderer during Knox’s first appeal in June 2011. She also claims her brother, who was a fugitive from the law, is now dead.

~Snipped~

During Knox’s retrial in 2011, a former cellmate of Aviello testified that Sollecito’s attorney paid Aviello €158,000 for his testimony, which he used for gender reassignment surgery. Aviello denied the accusations that he was paid to testify.

Seattle PI | Good news for Amanda Knox: Victim’s DNA not found on knife

Friday, October 11, 2013 | By:  Candace Dempsey, author of Murder in Italy (Penguin), the true story of Amanda Knox

"Why is this finding a huge setback for the prosecution? Because Perugia police took the knife from the kitchen of Raffaele Sollecito, Knox’s then boyfriend, and she had used it to cut bread. Thus her DNA is not incriminating–unless the knife shows traces of the victim, in blood. The fact that Knox’s DNA showed up, not Kercher’s, increases the odds that she could be acquitted in this third murder trial, which should wrap up in late November in Florence, Italy."

Amanda Knox slammed for soliciting funds in victim's memory

AP 5:08 p.m. EST December 16, 2013

FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — A lawyer urged an Italian appeals court on Monday to convict Amanda Knox of murdering British student Meredith Kercher and denounced as "unbearable" that the American was soliciting donations in Kercher's memory.

Francesco Maresca, in his closing arguments on behalf of the Kercher family in the third trial of Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito, urged the eight lay jurors on the panel of 10 to disregard publicity over the case as well as Knox's own statements, including her criticism of Italy's judicial system.

"She has become a well-known person. You know she signed contracts for millions of dollars for her book. She has someone who takes care of her public relations. She has a personal website where she invites people to collect donations in the memory of the victim, Meredith Kercher, which is an unbearable contradiction for the family," Maresca said.

He said the world's attention has focused on Knox, while "the victim has fallen into oblivion, to the immense pain of the Kercher family."

Meredith Kercher murder suspect Rafaelle Sollecito 'begged Amanda Knox to wed him in bid to stay in US'

Jan 23, 2014 07:56  |  By Christopher Butckin

The 29-year-old is claimed to have begged co-accused Amanda Knox, and a second woman, to marry him to try and ensure he could avoid extradition to Italy

Meredith Kercher murder suspect Rafaelle Sollecito begged co-accused Amanda Knox to wed him in a bid to stay in the US and avoid facing justice in Italy, it has been claimed.

But when she refused because she was already involved in a relationship, the 29-year-old turned his attentions to another woman, hoping he could get the American citizenship that would stop him being extradited for a retrial in Florence.

And he launched an angry tirade against Knox, 26, claiming she owed him because he refused to help police build a case against her in exchange for his freedom. The Italian met single mum Kelsey Kay after Knox turned down his wedding proposal.

Amanda Knox In U.S. As Italian Court Begins Deliberations

By COLLEEN BARRY 01/30/14 08:05 AM ET EST AP

FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — An appeals court in Florence began deliberations Thursday in the third murder trial of U.S. student Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend as the star defendant waited far away on a separate continent.

Knox's defense team gave their last round of rebuttals, ending four months of arguments in Knox's and Italian Raffaele Sollecito's third trial for the 2007 murder of her British roommate in the Italian university town of Perugia.

Knox's lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova told the court he was "serene" about the verdict because he believes the only conclusion from the files is "the innocence of Amanda Knox."

Court upholds murder conviction against Knox

1 min ago | By Associated Press

After nearly 12 hours of deliberations Thursday, the court reinstated the guilty verdict first handed down against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito in 2009.

FLORENCE, Italy — An appeals court in Florence has upheld the guilty verdict against U.S. student Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend for the 2007 murder of her British roommate. Knox was sentenced to 28 ½ years in prison, raising the specter of a long legal battle over her extradition.

After nearly 12 hours of deliberations Thursday, the court reinstated the guilty verdict first handed down against Knox and Raffaele Sollecito in 2009. The verdict had been overturned in 2011 and the pair freed from prison, but Italy's supreme court vacated that decision and sent the case back for a third trial in Florence.

Amanda Knox 'Will Be Extradited By US'

Legal experts suggest there is no reason why Amanda Knox should not be extradited - but the process could take several years.
11:33am UK, Friday 31 January 2014

Snipped:
-----
America will have little choice but to extradite Amanda Knox if Italy requests it, according to legal experts.

Knox says she will only go back to Italy "kicking and screaming" after an Italian court ruled she should not have been cleared.

But expectations that America will not extradite Knox to serve a 28-year sentence are unfounded, according to lawyers.

... "I would also find it hard to conceive that they could refuse the request on the grounds of double jeopardy.

"In fact, I cannot see any reason why she would not be extradited."

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz agreed that American judges will have little choice but to grant Italy's request.

... The professor said he doubted that even double jeopardy - where someone cannot be tried twice for the same offence - will protect Knox.

This is because she was initially found guilty and her acquittal was heard at an intermediate appeals level.

"If that happened in the US, it wouldn't be double jeopardy," he said.

Amanda Knox vows to fight murder conviction, won't 'go willingly' to Italy
 
By Laura Smith-Spark and Hada Messia, CNN

updated 9:42 AM EST, Fri January 31, 2014



Florence, Italy (CNN) -- Amanda Knox vowed Friday to fight her conviction for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher "until the very end" and said she "will never go willingly" back to Italy.

Speaking on ABC's "Good Morning America," Knox said news of the guilty verdict Thursday "really has hit me like a train."

"I did not expect this to happen. I really expected so much better from the Italian justice system," she said. "They found me innocent before. How can they say that it's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt?"

Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend: I wasn't trying to flee

By Tracy Connor, Claudio Lavanga and Alexander Smith, NBC News

Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend said Friday that he was out of Italy when he got the stunning news that they had been re-convicted of her roommate's brutal murder and he immediately returned to surrender his passport.

But Raffaele Sollecito said that before he could get to a police station, officers swooped down on him in a border hotel in Italy, woke him up and took him in.

"As soon as I got the news there was a guilty verdict … I came right immediately back in Italy," Sollecito told NBC News in an exclusive interview.

Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend says he'll face new 'ordeal'

By Matt Smith, CNN
updated 9:08 PM EST, Mon February 3, 2014



(CNN) -- The ex-boyfriend of American exchange student Amanda Knox says he has returned to Italy to fight his new murder conviction in the death of Knox's onetime roommate, Meredith Kercher.

In a CNN interview Monday evening, Raffaele Sollecito said he and his current girlfriend were in neighboring Austria, preparing to celebrate what he had expected to be his exoneration by an Italian court. Instead, that court found Knox and Sollecito guilty for a second time last week, sentencing him to 25 years.

Knox, who returned to the United States after her 2009 conviction was overturned, said last week that she "will never go willingly" back to Italy. But Sollecito said he came back "as soon as I understood the verdict."

Amanda Knox Case Latest News: Appeal Trial Set for March 25

By Virnelli Mercader , Christian Post Contributor
March 5, 2015|4:49 pm


Amanda Knox has been trying to live a semblance of a normal life in Seattle since being released from prison. The 27-year-old is currently employed at a bookstore and is writing for the West Seattle Herald. Moreover, Knox has become engaged to Colin Sutherland. Sutherland, 27, is said to have known Cox since they were in middle school and has reportedly written numerous letters to her while she was incarcerated in Italy.

The news of Knox's engagement was first reported in Seattle Times, and columnist Jonathan Martin wrote that Knox confirmed the engagement via email. No date has been set for the wedding.

~Snipped~

The appeal hearing, scheduled on March 25 in Italy, could result in Knox's acquittal. Many of her supporters fear that Knox and Sollecito could be sent back for another trial. Knox has repeatedly said that she has no intentions of voluntarily returning to Italy. If she is convicted again, Italy is likely to request to extradite her, but Sutherland speculates that members of Washington's congressional delegation will make it into a political fight.

See Cara Delevingne Act In This Movie Inspired By Amanda Knox

by Abby Schreiber




Last summer we mentioned that Cara Delevingne was cast in a movie inspired by the Amanda Knox case and today we get a look at the first trailer for the film, The Face of an Angel. In the movie Delevingne plays a student who assists some reporters and filmmakers (Daniel Brühl and Kate Beckinsale) in town covering the case (and turning it into paychecks). The movie comes out in the UK later this month but supposedly won't hit our shores until June. In the meantime, check out the clip, above.

Italy's top court overturns Amanda Knox conviction

Kim Hjelmgaard and John Bacon, USA TODAY 7:15 p.m. EDT March 27, 2015

In a final ruling, Italy's highest court on Friday overturned the convictions of American Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend in the sensational murder case of Knox's British roommate.

The six judges of the Court of Cassation announced their decision about 10:30 p.m. in Rome (5:30 p.m. ET). They began deliberating at noon after closing arguments by a lawyer for Raffaele Sollecito, Knox's boyfriend when 21-year-old Meredith Kercher was stabbed to death in late 2007.

"I am tremendously relieved and grateful for the decision of the Supreme Court of Italy," the 27-year-old Knox said in a statement from her home in Seattle. "The knowledge of my innocence has given me strength in the darkest times of this ordeal."

Amanda Knox Targeted With Death Threats Because She ‘Got Away With Murder’

Amanda Knox may have been acquitted in the murder of Meredith Kercher, but numerous people still believe that the Seattle woman is guilty of killing her. That’s why she’s been the target of death threats recently. Morning News USA reports that the FBI is investigating a series of death threats received by the twice-convicted/twice-acquitted Seattle woman. However, the same news report claims that most of the threats are coming from British citizens — folks who are angry that she was acquitted.

So is Amanda Knox in danger?

Rudy Guede calls for retrial after Amanda Knox acquitted of Meredith Kercher murder

By Andrea Vogt, Bologna   3:17PM BST 08 Apr 2015

The only person in jail for the murder of Briton Meredith Kercher has said he wants a retrial following the acquittal of Amanda Knox.

During a special parliamentary visit to review conditions in the Viterbo prison on Tuesday morning, Ivory Coast national Rudy Guede told Italian senator Andrea Augello he wants the case to be reviewed in light of the high court decision acquitting Ms Knox and Raffaele Sollecito.

“I am the impossibly convicted one,” Guede, 28, told New Center-Right Senator Augello. “I’m accomplice to a crime for which no one else has been found guilty. I’m the only one convicted, but the judges will be convinced that I certainly can’t be an accomplice to myself.”

I second this.

There are those that will hound Amanda and Raffaele forever, even if it means allowing a further reduction in Guede's sentence; or perhaps they will be happy to see him released with time served.  And what--accept another mere apology when he does it again?

I realize that many will scoff at the first link below, but everything there is well sourced and worth the time to review.

Quote:  Two weeks after the conviction of Knox and Sollecito in December 2009 the verdict of Guede’s appeal was read. The judges found no new evidence but granted mitigating circumstances and reduced the penalty to 24 years (reduced to 16 because of the abbreviated procedure). End of Quote
http://www.amandaknoxcase.com/rudy-guede/

This quote is from a translated version of the judge's decision on Guede's appeal, sourced at the above link, and is one of the mitigating factors outlined in the judge's decision.

Quote:  Then, apart from the attempt to staunch the flow of blood from the wound and the proof that it was not he that held the knife that was compatible with the worst of the lesions, it should also be remembered that Guede was the only one, even if in a somewhat fanciful reconstruction of events, to indicate the perpetrators.  End of Quote

Such sloppy investigative collecting and testing of evidence, failure to secure a crime scene, failure to properly depose witnesses, etc., has made a terrible miscarriage of justice. I am appalled a modern nation was so careless. Personally, I do believe she was involved. Somewhat. Some way. But was it murder or covering evidence or conspiracy? Dunno and we never will do the the nature of the investigative work up that was or was not done.

The case disgusts me.

Like Jodi Arias and her proclamations of being a "survivor" and "saving the world of abusers, " Amanda Knox has stated she wants to assist those wrongly accused. (If there has not been a trial, who is Knox to determine who has been "wrongly" accused?) Like JA, Knox has performed some interesting body maneuvers while in custody.... that is rather alarming, IMO. bounce She is weird, IMO. And where there is smoke there is often fire.affraid

Re: Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito will face retrial for Meredith Kercher murder

This is a 45 minute video, but it is interesting if you can find the time.

Her guest is Jim Clemente, and once they get into the discussion they touch on every point.

It was done before the Italian Supreme Court overturned Amanda's and Raffaele's murder convictions.  

If anyone is planning on traveling abroad, or knows of anyone who is--particularly young people; the last five minutes are especially mindful.  JMO, of course!

Amanda Knox case update: Italian Court explains decision to acquit Knox, co accused; blame shoddy police, prosecution work

Angie C. 11 September, 2015 1:29 PM

...According to the court document, the main basis for the acquittal was that the police and prosecutors were responsible for "stunning weakness" and "investigative bouts of amnesia."

It also called to task the lack of biological evidence linking Knox or Sollecito to the scene of the crime. As such, they should not have been held responsible for the killing.

"There was no shortage of glaring errors in the underlying fabric of the sentence in question," the court document read.

The court also found issue with the alleged murder weapon, which was a kitchen knife that was found in Sollecito's house contained in a cardboard box, and a bra clasp which was said to have carried DNA evidence but was left on the floor for 46 days.

Awwww, Freckles.  

Guede will be up for parole soon, and if he were to change his story back to the original version the parole board would not look favorably on him.

Did you see the following article?  He wrote on the walls with his finger dipped in Meredith's blood.  I didn't know that.

They had a video up of the interview with him actually saying it, and more.  She was alive at the time and making sounds, which he obliges by reproducing.  (Gee, I wonder why they took the video down.)

Anyway here is the link to support what I am discussing above:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3411192/Meredith-Kercher-s-killer-tells-wrote-wall-BLOOD.html
________________________

He was originally sentenced to 30 years but had his sentence reduced for stating Amanda and Raffaele were present.  His statement was considered a "mitigating circumstance."

Snipped quote:  A man jailed for 30 years for killing UK student Meredith Kercher has had his sentence almost halved on appeal.

Rudy Guede, 23, will now serve 16 years for killing the Leeds University student from Surrey, who had her throat slit in Perugia, Italy, in 2007.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8427250.stm

"Even if in a somewhat fanciful reconstruction of events."  That's how desperate they were.


Let's do a review of the evidence against Guede.  He will only have to serve about two thirds of that 16 years, so he will be out soon.
