Amanda Knox Found Guilty of Murder After Retrial, Sentenced to 28 Years

Amanda Knox, an American who was thrust into the spotlight after going through a trial for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher in November 2007, was just found guilty of the crime once again in a retrial.

Back in 2007, Meredith was found partially naked in her own blood in the home she shared with Amanda, 26, in Perugia, Italy. Amanda‘s ex boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was also accused of murder, CNN reports.

Back in 2011, Amanda, who had served four years in prison in Italy, won appeals and had her convictions overturned.

Amanda, who has been found guilty for 28.5 years, and Raffaele, who was sentenced for 25 years, would have to return to Italy to serve their sentences.

United States law states that a citizen cannot be tried twice on the same charge, and legal experts say it’s unlikely she will be extradited because of it.
