amanda knox press confROME, Italy — A high court in Italy released its reasoning for throwing out the acquittal of Seattle-native Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito Tuesday.

According to the Dailybeast.com, the acquittal of Knox and her former boyfriend in the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher was thrown out in March. On Tuesday, the LaPresse News agency announced that the judge, in a 74-page ruling, found her acquittal fraught with “deficiencies and contradictions.” The judge wrote it was possible that Knox and Sollecito killed Kercher during an erotic game.

Both will stand trial again for the murder sometime by early 2014. A new appeal will be held in Florence, Italy.

Knox is not required to attend the new trial, the Daily Beast reported, and even if she is found guilty again, she is guaranteed yet another appeal. Knox’s lawyer said the decision is a “step backward” for the 27-year-old, but that she will continue to fight for her innocence.

    This is why America was created to get away from European dictators and malicious prosecutors. Except that didn’t work with Democrat Mike Nifong and his malicious prosecution of the Duke Lacrosse players though… If I were her I would just give them the middle finger, they have no credibility and go in circles like clowns.
