A retrial has been ordered in Italy for Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who were accused of the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher. Knox and Sollecito were convicted of Kercher's murder in an Italian court in Perugia in 2009, but their convictions were later overturned by an appeals court, and Knox and Sollecito were released from prison in October 2011. Now Knox and Sollecito's prior acquittals have been overturned by Italy's highest court.
Nina Burleigh, a columnist for the New York Observer and author of "The Fatal Gift of Beauty: The Trials of Amanda Knox", has followed the developments with the Knox case for many years.
