PERUGIA, Italy (AP) - A jury has convicted American student Amanda Knox of murdering her British roommate. She was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
Knox, 22, and Raffaele Sollecito, 25, were charged with murder and sexual assault in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher. All three were studying in Perugia in Italy's central Umbria region at the time.
Kercher's body was found in a pool of blood with her throat slit on Nov. 2, 2007, in the bedroom of the house she shared with Knox. Prosecutors contended the 21-year-old Leeds University student was murdered the previous night.
Sollecito was also found guilty. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
