Amanda KnoxItalian Supreme Court has ruled that American, Amanda Knox, should stand trial again for the death of her ex-roommate. Knox is accused of killing her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, back in 2007. She spent four years in prison until her conviction was overturned on appeal in October 2011.

(CNN) — Amanda Knox issued a statement after Italian Supreme Court judges ruled Tuesday she should stand trial again for the death of her former roommate Meredith Kercher in Italy, saying any questions to her innocence “must be examined by an objective investigation and a capable prosecution.” “It was painful to receive the news that the Italian Supreme Court decided to send my case back for revision when the prosecution’s theory of my involvement in Meredith’s murder has been repeatedly revealed to be completely unfounded and unfair … No matter what happens, my family and I will face this continuing legal battle as we always have, confident in the truth and with our heads held high in the face of wrongful accusations and unreasonable adversity.”
