Amanda Knox on how she thinks her case would be viewed today

Fourteen years ago this week, 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher was sexually assaulted and murdered in a brutal attack in her apartment in the Italian city of Perugia.

However, as the world’s media descended, a narrative quickly emerged around Amanda Knox – Meredith’s American flatmate.

After being found guilty along with her then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and serving four years in prison, Knox and Sollecito were exonerated by the Italian Supreme Court on appeal in 2015. The 34-year-old now lives back in Seattle with her family.
