Amanda KnoxAmanda Knox, A prosecutor in the appeal trial of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito went on the attack in a court in Perugia, Italy on Saturday in an attempt to fire an independent forensic expert report that could set the couple free from jail a case that has made headlines worldwide.

Knox and Sollecito were convicted in December 2009 and sentenced to 26 and 25 years in prison respectively for the murder of Meredith Kercher 2007, a British student who shared an apartment with Knox in Perugia. Both deny wrongdoing and is expected to sentence will be overturned on appeal. A third person, Rudy Guede, was also convicted in another trial for her involvement in the murder and is serving 16 years. He has exhausted his appeals.

The two experts – Carla Vecchiotti and Stefano Conti – were appointed by the Perugia appeals court to conduct independent DNA testing on crucial pieces of evidence – the alleged murder weapon: a knife found at Sollecito’s house, and the closure of the victim’s bra, which is in the room where the British exchange student was murdered.
