As for Casey Anthony, guilty and yuck! But the Amanda Knox murder trial in Italy is one I’ve followed since the beginning thanks to the Today Show. When there’s a hottie in the hot seat, the media just can’t resist reporting day after day.
The BIG question now is a verdict in the murder conviction appeal trial is expected within the WEEK, so will she be released back to the US and her family or be faced to complete her 26-year jail sentence?
Quick background: Amanda Knox, 24, has been jailed four years for her connection in the 2007 murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, at the apartment they were sharing in Perugia, Italy. You can see read the full details of the murder and trial here or watch a Today Show segment here
Amanda Knox has had multiple nicknames in the press from “Foxy Knoxy” to more recently “Jessica Rabbit” and “She Devil” after prosecutors claimed she has a manipulative promiscuous reputation. Many also felt her behavior was inappropriate and strange after there were photos of her making out with her Harry Potter look alike boyfriend (also in prison for the murder) just hours after her roommate was found dead.
(Sidenote Amanda “Noxema” Knox: Her looks have always drawn added attention to the case. I’m curious. What kind of food, facewash and/or stress management skills do they provide in the Italian prison system? Could she have a more perfect complexion?
The murder case surrounding Amanda Knox has already generated 10 books, endless news stories and even a Lifetime movie. I hope one day the real truth comes out for the sake of the victim’s family, but I don’t think it ever will.
Amanda’s lawyers will deliver closing arguments tomorrow so if you’ve been following this story, what do you think?
Hope you’re having a good week.
