Lori and I are flabbergasted!
Amanda Knox has once again been found guilty of the murder of her former roommate, as well as some sort of slander charges after-the-fact. This is from the re-trial at the appellate court level over in Italy. We don't have the reasoning of this new guilty verdict yet, but the reports from her lawyers are that there still is no evidence more than there ever was - which is nothing that ties her to the murder.
Amanda remains in the US, she can still do an appeal to the Italian Supreme Court, and is apparently still considered innocent in their justice system until that appeal is decided. Small consolation after the 4 years she served, I imagine.
Well, this case just keeps getting stranger. We'll keep following CNN and HLN and report back in. And don't forget to check out Lori's earlier post for today about the burlap gold-leaf canvas we made when she was here. So cute. If you want to check out our past Amanda Knox update, click here.
