Accused Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito will make their last appealing attempt on Monday to convince the court hearing that they had nothing to do with the 2007 murder of Knox's then-flatmate, Meredith Kercher, a British student
The Kecher’s family will fly to Perugia to hear the final pleas to the alleged suspects.
According to the legal counsel of Kecher’s family, Knox slashed Kecher’s throat static together with her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede, a small time drug trafficker from Ivory Coast.
Knox, who arrived in Italy less than a month before the killing, was sentenced to 26 years at the trial two years ago. Sollecito, who had known Knox for just six days, was given a 25-year sentence.
Their lawyers have argued Kercher was killed by Guede alone during a break-in. They have poured scorn on the prosecutors' theory of a sex game that got out of hand.
