Amanda Knox has spoken of her joy after Italy’s Supreme Court overturned her conviction for the 2007 murder of British student Meredith Kercher.
In a surprise move, a five-judge panel threw out the second guilty verdict against the 27-year-old American and her Italian former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.
“I’m incredibly grateful for what has happened, for the justice I’ve received, for the support I’ve had from everyone: from my family; from my friends; to strangers; to people like you (the press),” said Knox. “You’ve saved my life and I’m so grateful to have my life back… I’m still absorbing the present moment, which is full of joy. Thank you.”
