AMANDA Knox, one of Meredith Kercher’s killers, is on the cover of the UK papers. The British student was killed in Perugia on Nov 1, 2007. In 2008, Rudy Guede, 20, was convicted of murder and sentenced to 30 years in prison, reduced to 16 years on appeal 
Amanda Knox and Knox and Raffaele Sollecito trial begins. Found guilty of murder and sexual violence, they are jailed for 26 and 25 years respectively
