ROME, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. An appeals court in Florence found guilty American Amanda Knox and Italian citizen Raffaele Sollecito in the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007.
Knox, who is currently in the US, was sentenced to 28 years and six months in prison. Sollecito, currently in Italy, was sentenced to 25 years.
The American continues to insist that she is not guilty. “I am frightened and saddened by this unjust verdict,” Knox said. “Having been found innocent before, I expected better from the Italian justice system,” she added.
