(Undated)  –  Amanda Knox says she is “frightened and saddened” by an Italian court’s decision to convict her of murder again.  She released a statement saying the verdict was “unjust.”  Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend were found guilty for the second time for the 2007 murder of British student Meredith Kercher in a retrial.  She had been acquitted by an appeals court in 2011.

Knox, who did not attend the trial, was sentenced Thursday to 28 and a-half years in jail.  But it appears unlikely she would serve any time as she would have to be extradited.   Both Knox and her ex-boyfriend are expected to appeal the ruling.
