Amanda Knox Verdict - Guilty on all charges

Seattle sex kitten Amanda Knox has been found guilty of the 1997 murder of Merideth Kercher. The 8 person Italian Jury just announced the Guilty verdict in a midnight court room session.

The parents of Amanda Knox were at the courthouse with their daughter and had prepared two statements for the press. Hoping for an aquital, Amanda Knox's parents were preparing for a 30 minute press conference at a local hotel. Unfortunately, Amanda Knox will not be going home for Christmas as she may very well be facing life in an Italian Prison.

After the Amanda Knox verdict announcement, several questions still remain. How long will Amanda Knox remain in prison? Will Amanda Knox serve her prison sentence in the United States or Italy? This will all be answered when the judge in the case rules on sentencing in the Amanda Knox Murder trial.

Of course Amanda Knox still has the ability to appeal her murder conviction and is expected to do so. Failing the appeal, Amanda Knox may very well face life in an Italian Prison.

Case details:

Amanda Knox and her ex boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were both found guilty in the murder of Meredith Kercher in 2007.

The defence for Amanda Knox argued investigators only found one piece of DNA evidence on the scene, a cigarette butt containing Raffaele's DNA. In addition, the defence for Amanda Knox argued the amount of DNA in support of a murder conviction against Amanda Knox was so small it could not even be re-tested for accuracy.

Regardless of their objections, the jury decided against Amanda Knox in this international headline grabbing case.
