Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher and then they were acquitted and then a dude named Ray Guede was convicted of the murder, and now the Italian Supreme Court has decided to try her ass again, because why not? The judges of Italy’s Supreme Court announced today that they will retry both Foxy Knoxy and Raffaele Sollecito. Judge Saverio Chieffi told the court that he will present his reasons behind the decision within three months and once he does both sides will have 45 days to present their case. The retrial won’t happen until next year in Florence.
CNN says that right after Amanda Knox was acquitted in 2011, she put her ass on a plane to Seattle and she hasn’t been back to Italy since. Having lunch at the Olive Garden is probably the closest she’s ever gotten to visiting Italy again. Although, the Olive Garden is so authentic that it practically IS Italy. The court will probably retry Amanda without her being there, but there’s a chance Italy could ask the US to send her back for the trial. But the US will probably never extradite Amanda Knox to Italy, because in the US you can’t be tried twice on the same allegation. So basically, instead of sending Amanda Knox, the US will send a DVD copy of Double Jeopardy starring Ashley Judd.
A lawyer for Meredith’s family said that they are happy with the decision, because they feel that the ruling that set Amanda and Raffaele free was “superficial” and “unbalanced.” They still believe that more than one person was in the room with their daughter when she was murdered.
Foxy Knoxy said in a statement this morning that the high court’s ruling is “painful” and “unfair.”
Nancy Grace said in a statement this morning, “YAAAAASSSSS!” Since the Jodi Arias case is almost over, Nancy’s going to need another pretty girl murder case to cream over.
