[UPDATE] Amanda Knox was crying when she faced the Italian appeals court. She said that she did not kill her British roommate, pleading for the court to free her so she can go back to the United States after four years behind jail prison. The court began discussions moments later.
Knox repeatedly paused for breath and fought back tears as she spoke in Italian to the six members of the jury and two judges in a jam-packed courtroom, but managed to keep her tranquility.
"I've lost a friend in the worst, most brutal, most inexplicable way possible," Knox said. "I'm paying with my life for things that I didn't do."
Knox says to her last plea, "I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal. I wasn't there. I wasn't there at the crime," Knox said. "I insist I'm innocent and that must be defended. I just want to go home, go back to my life,"
Knox's words and expressions bring tears even to the eyes of some reporters in the room.
