(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.
