Enormous Mistake (4#) -

Meredith Kercher Homicide -

Amanda Knox began this session of her appeal process melodramatically by performing a very emotive 17-minute soliloquy from notes.

"The judges and jury showed no emotion." [Vogt]

But Francesco Maresca, the Kercher Family's lawyer, hadn't bought a ticket for this opera and walked out on it.

Knox was convicted by a lower court last year of killing her mixed-race flatmate, Meredith Kercher, while she was zonked on drugs.

Defense is hoping to discredit some DNA and technical forensic evidence, but even if they succeed in eliminating some items, there's a mountain of other evidence.

NB: The press coverage will make a lot more sense to you if you keep in mind that Knox was stoned out of her skull at the time of this homicide.

Proceedings are scheduled
to resume Dec 18th, next Saturday.
