Amanda Knox freed

Amanda Knox reacts after hearing the verdict during her appeal trial in Perugia October 3, 2011. An Italian court cleared 24-year-old American Knox and her former boyfriend of the 2007 killing of British student Meredith Kercher and ordered they be freed on Monday after nearly four years in prison for a crime they always denied committing. Seattle native Knox and Italian computer student Raffaele Sollecito, had appealed against a 2009 verdict that found them guilty of murdering 21-year-old Kercher during what prosecutors had said was a drug-fuelled sexual assault four years ago.
