The trial of Amanda Knox is interesting. I would love to hear some comments about the case by people who have followed it. I don’t have time to read all there is to know but I am curious about it because if you look at the photos of Guede (see photos below), who was already convicted in the crime, and those of Knox and her boyfriend, you can see the stark contrast. However, evil is often disguised as good and pure. Did Knox and Sollecito help Guede in the crime?
Knox is an American student who was living in Italy and is now accused in a brutal murder along with her and her boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito. The two are accused of fatally stabbing Knox’s British roommate, Meredith Kercher, during a “drug-fueled sex game .”
Knox, who is from Seattle Washington, and her Italian boyfriend have been on trial for several months. Knox says the accusations against her are “pure fantasy.” “Meredith was my friend, I didn’t hate her,” Knox said.
Merdedith’s throat was slit and she was found in the apartment that she and Knox shared in Italy. Prosecutors say Knox resented her roommate and killed her along with Sollecito and a man named Rudy Hermann Guede, of the Ivory Coast. Guede was convicted in the rape and killing of Meredith last year but Prosecutors say that Knox and Sollecito are also guilty of aiding him in the rape and murder. Guede was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
