Amanda Knox: Charged with Kercher Murder
One of the three, Rudy Guede, was convicted yesterday of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher. Immediately after, charges for the crime were also brought against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. Things are not looking up for Ms. Knox.
Prosecutors contended that Mr. Guede, Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito killed Ms. Kercher in a drug-fueled sex game that went awry. They also accused Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecity of covering up the killing to make it look like a robbery. Judge Micheli ruled that Ms. Knox and Ms. Sollecito should stand trial on all charges filed by prosecutors, lawyers said.
The trial is set to begin Dec. 4.
