A court in Italy has reinstated the guilty verdicts against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito for the murder of UK student Meredith Kercher in 2007.

American Knox - who is in the US - and her Italian ex-boyfriend Sollecito had pleaded not guilty.

She was sentenced to 28 years and six months in jail, while Sollecito received 25 years.

The latest verdict overturns the pair's successful 2011 appeal, which freed them after four years in jail.

Ms Kercher was stabbed to death in the flat she shared in Perugia with Knox.

After nearly 12 hours of deliberations, the judges delivered their verdict in a courtroom in Florence, Tuscany.

They ordered that damages should be paid by the pair to the family of Ms Kercher. Ms Kercher's brother Lyle and sister Stephanie were present when the verdict was read out.

Sollecito was ordered to surrender his passport. Extradition proceedings against Ms Knox, who refused to return to Italy for the case, may now begin.

'Flawed'

Thursday's fresh appeal hearing was ordered by Italy's highest court, the supreme court in Rome.

It had found that the 2011 appeal - which acquitted the pair - was flawed.

Analysis

image of David WillisDavid WillisBBC News, Washington

Since her release from prison in October 2011, Amanda Knox has sought to pick up from where she left off.

Returning to the community on the outskirts of Seattle where she grew up, she re-enrolled at the University of Washington to study creative writing, and apart from a brief flurry of interviews to promote her autobiography - entitled Waiting to be Heard - has otherwise sought to keep a low profile.

But much as she may crave anonymity, Knox remains a constant source of fascination for the tabloid press which follows her every move.

Knox refused to return to Italy for the retrial, citing what she called on her blog the "smoke and mirrors" of the prosecution, but she has continued to maintain her innocence, writing: "I am not a murderer... I did not kill Meredith or take part in her murder, or have any prior or special knowledge of what occurred that night. I was not there and had nothing to do with it."

Knox maintains Rudy Guede - a drug dealer who is serving 16 years for Ms Kercher's murder - acted alone.

The court in Florence heard from Knox's defence team in the morning, before the two judges and eight jurors retired to deliberate on a verdict.

Summing up, Knox's lawyer, Carlo Dalla Vedova, told the court her innocence was "rock-solid and it allows us to await the verdict with serenity".

The supreme court overturned their acquittals last March after an appeal by prosecutors, who argued that important DNA evidence had been disregarded.

Ms Kercher, from Coulsdon in south London and 21 at the time, was found with her throat cut in a flat she shared with Knox in the college city of Perugia, in the central region of Umbria.

Rudy Guede from the Ivory Coast was convicted of her murder at an earlier trial and sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Prosecutors sought to prove Ms Kercher had died in a sex game involving Knox and Sollecito that had gone wrong.

They have since alleged that the murder resulted from a heated argument over cleanliness in the Perugia apartment.

Arrested days after the murder and detained in prison, Knox and Sollecito were tried and convicted in November 2009.

In 2011, an eight-member jury cleared both defendants of Ms Kercher's murder after doubts were raised over procedures used to gather DNA evidence.

Ordering a retrial last year, the supreme court moved proceedings from Umbria to Florence, in the northern region of Tuscany.

Sollecito, 29, told the court in November that it made "no real sense" for him to have committed "such an atrocious act".

she never has to set foot in Europe again so i'm sure this will just gain her more notoriety and money here in the U.S.

double jeopardy?


Posted By: BrownQtee

Right..double jeapordy will prevent her from getting extradited. If the US abides by the law..then she will not be sent back.

"Even if Knox is convicted this time around, it is unlikely she will ever return to Italy. One legal expert told CNN that since U.S. law dictates that a person cannot be tried twice on the same charge, she will not be extradited. "Under U.S. law, she was once put in jeopardy and later acquitted," http://edition.cnn.com/2013/03/26/justice/knox-extradition/index.html" rel="nofollow - said Sean Casey, a former prosecutor who is now a partner at Kobre & Kim in New York. "Under the treaty, extradition should not be granted."

They would have to come get me.
If the US sided with Italy, I'd go to Canada and beyond.

She got a taste of Italian Jail, she won't be returning even if she is a fugitive for life.

I don't think the US will hand her over Italy. And she once said that she will be always on the run if she is found guilty again.

Double jeopardy doesn't apply in this case, I read..
She can't even travel to Canada cuz we have an agreement with Italy as well in terms of extradition so she would risk being extradited. It's like that for all of Europe and a few Latin American countries

I think the Rudy guy did, there was too much physical evidence against him and none of Amanda
the case was a royal fucc up from the start though

I hope the US rejects their request if they submit one

Quote In many European countries, the prosecution may appeal an acquittal to a higher court (similar to the provisions of Canadian law) – this is not counted as double jeopardy but as a continuation of the same trial. This is allowed by the European Convention on Human Rights (note the word finally in the above quotation).

Wasn't the black guy a drug dealer who confessed to the murder?
I don't think she did it. They didn't find any evidence against her....

His DNA was all and through the crime scene plus his sperm inside her
No DNA from Amanda was at the scene at all.

The girl is innocent esp if people have read the actual facts of the case

Damn, we have American privilege?? or is it. . . yt american privilege???LOL

She's guilty as can be and I never understood why she was released. If the US sides with her, we can forget about ever requesting the return of a criminal from Italy.

She won't return on her own, I can fault her for that.

Wow that's sad. I wonder why Italy is so determined to lock her up. Regardless if she's white it's horrible for ANYONE to serve time for something they didn't commit. The brotha had his sperm and dna all over that murder victim but ya want the white girl locked up....Confused

I don't remember all the gory details, but I do recall thinking she was guilty.  Why shouldn't the US send her back?  We would want the same if they were harboring a criminal convicted of a crime in the US...

They should have never released her.

are u sure u have? their dna isn't anywhere 
the footprint, the bloody hand on the wall, the sperm inside her, all of that dna belonged to the black drug dealer

ppl judged her on the fact that she was acting ''weird'' and not sad enough, still doesn't mean she did it

I do believe her when she says the italian courts forced that confession out of her...they royally screwed up the case
