Italian prosecutors have appealed the murder acquittal of American-born Amanda Knox, who along with boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, was accused in the 2007 stabbing death of Meredith Kercher, a British student living in Perugia, Italy.
Knox, who shared a house with Kercher, served four years of a 26-year murder sentence before the conviction was overturned on October 3, 2011
According to The New York Times, if the appeal is granted, Knox could be tried in absentia and extradited if convicted.
In a statement, Knox’s attorney Carlo Dalla Vedova, asserted his client’s innocence. “We are sorry she has to deal with all this again,” he added.
