Knox "Grateful" After Murder Conviction Tossed

Amanda Knox said she was "incredibly grateful" after Italy's highest court on Friday overturned her and her ex-boyfriend's murder convictions in the 2007 stabbing death of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, NBC News reported. Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were convicted in 2009, then acquitted and freed in 2011. An appeals court overturned the acquittals and ordered a new trial, and they were convicted again last year. Knox was sentenced in absentia to 25 years in prison. Sollecito was sentenced to 28 1/2 years. Knox said in a statement Friday she is "relieved and grateful" after the court's decision. "I'm incredibly grateful...for the justice I've received, for the support that I've had from everyone," an emotional Knox, flanked by her family, told reporters Friday night outside her home. "You've saved my life and I am so grateful that I have my life back." Read »
