PERUGIA, Italy – An American woman who was convicted of murdering her roommate in Italy is now cleared of all charges.
Kercher’s body was found in her home after being stabbed 40 times.
Knox and Sollecito were immediately arrested. The couple was eventually convicted of the crime in 2009.
However, they were acquitted and freed in 2011.
Knox came back to the United States, where she learned that an appeals court had overturned the acquittals and ordered a new trial.
Last year, they were convicted of murdering Kercher again.
Knox, who refuses to go back to Italy, was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Sollecito was sentenced to 28 and a half.
On Friday, that conviction was overturned.
