The Murder Of Meredith Kercher By Amanda Knox And Raffaele Sollecito: In Pictures

by | 6th, December 2009

FORMER lovers Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito are found guilty of the murder of Leeds University student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy. Knox, 22, and Sollecito, 25, killed 21-year-old Miss Kercher in what began as an extreme sex game and ended with Sollecito holding her down while Knox cut her throat with a six-inch kitchen knife. They were aided small-time drug dealer Rudy Guede, 22, who was jailed for murder and sexual violence last October for 30 years.

The lawyer for Meredith’s family says: “They got the justice they were expecting. We got what we were hoping for.”

Knox’s aunt Janet Huff said: “We’ve got two innocent kids being put away for a crime they didn’t commit.”

A tearful Amanda Knox said Saturday that being in prison is "very frustrating and mentally exhausting" as the American student convicted of murdering her roommate insisted she is innocent and does not want to spend the rest of her life behind bars. Knox was emotional as she briefly addressed the appeals court in Perugia at the end of the session, her voice breaking at times and her eyes tearing up. She was convicted in 2009 of sexually assaulting and murdering Meredith Kercher of Britain, and sentenced to 26 years in prison. (AP Photo/Stefano Medici)
