Italy: Knox appeal decision due

AMANDA Knox could walk free from prison today if an Italian court overturns her conviction for the murder of Meredith Kercher.

The young American is serving a 26-year jail term for killing the British student in what prosecutors said was a sex game taken to the extreme.

But she maintains she played no part in Miss Kercher’s violent death and has been appealing against her trial verdict for the past 11 months.
