Topic: D-day for Amanda Knox over Italy murder conviction

Amanda Knox is set to discover Wednesday whether she will be labelled a killer for life as Italy's top court rules on her conviction for the murder of a British student nearly eight years ago. The court will examine the verdict that found American Knox and her former lover Raffaele Sollecito guilty of killing British student Meredith Kercher in a case that has captivated the world with its sub-texts of drugs, alleged sexual debauchery and police bungling. Just under a year later, Ivory Coast-born drifter Rudy Guede was jailed for her murder, with the judge in his fast-track trial concluding that he had not acted alone. In December 2009, Knox and Italian Sollecito were sentenced to 26 and 25 years in prison for their part in the killing.
