Mez: Handle
With Care (4#) -

Amanda Knox returned to court on Saturday . . .

She was previously convicted by a lower court of unintentionally killing her Eurasian flatmate, Meredith Kercher, while stoned on drugs, in concert with two others.

The appeals court was presided over by Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellman, who appointed two independent DNA experts, Stefano Conti and Carla Vecchioti from Sapienza University, to review the findings of the lower court on two controversial pieces of evidence. They have 90 days to make their examination and will report their findings to the court on May 21.

The next hearings are scheduled for
March 12, March 26, April 16 and May 21.

And in another case associated with Beatles music:

Patricia Krenwinkel, who participated in the Tate-LaBianca murders more than 40 years ago, was denied parole for the thirteenth time on Thursday.
