The Amanda Knox story will no doubt be on viewer’s minds tonight as the Amanda Knox movie is premiering on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. Hayden Panettiere is playing the role of Amanda Knox in the film.
People can’t help but be captivated by the story of Amanda Knox, the unassuming looking American student who found herself in the middle of a murder trial while abroad. She was sentenced to 26 years in prison after the death of her flatmate, Meredith Kercher, but is Amanda Knox really guilty?
Amanda Knox insists that she was at her boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito’s apartment when the murder occurred, but later told police that she was in the kitchen of the flat she shared with Kercher when she was killed. Police became suspicious after Sollecito claimed that he did not know where Knox was during the crime. Amanda Knox’s story got even more interesting when she said that she made the confession under duress from the police.
What really happened to Meredith Kercher on the night of November 1st, 2007 may never be known, but the courts in Italy did convict Amanda Knox even though there was some conflicting evidence in the case. Do you think Amanda is guilty?
