She also recently claimed to have contemplated suicide while in prison.Upon the release of her memoir, Knox said she found solace in Marilynne Robinson’s “Housekeeping" while incarcerated, and listed Vladimir Nabokov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jonathan Safran Foer and David Foster Wallace among her favorite authors, according to an interview with The New York Times.But their arrests and that trio of guilty verdicts was only the beginning—and it's doubtful that , a new documentary that started streaming on Netflix Friday, will be the end."There are those who believe in my innocence and those who believe in my guilt.
She was sentenced to 26 years in prison and Sollecito 25 years. "We are extremely disappointed in the verdict rendered today against our daughter," Knox's family said in a statement at the time.
"While we always knew this was a possibility, we find it difficult to accept this verdict when we know that she is innocent, and that the prosecution has failed to explain why there is no evidence of Amanda in the room where Meredith was so horribly and tragically murdered."It appears clear to us that the attacks on Amanda's character in much of the media and by the prosecution had a significant impact on the judges and jurors and apparently overshadowed the lack of evidence in the prosecution's case against her."Guede, convicted in 2008 of sexually assaulting and killing Kercher while "acting with others," had already been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
The former boyfriend of Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito, has denied making jokes on Facebook about the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.
He served nearly four years in prison after being wrongfully convicted of the 2007 killing but was released in 2015 after being exonerated in Italy’s most senior court.
Knox and Sollecito were initially accused of murdering Kercher while acting in concert with Lumumba, but Lumumba was soon released, and the known burglar Rudy Guede was arrested, after Guede's bloodstained fingerprints were found on Kercher's possessions.
Pre-trial publicity in Italian media (and repeated by other media worldwide) portrayed Knox in a negative light, leading to complaints that the prosecution was using character assassination tactics.
Writing on her Facebook page, Ms Lucarelli posted screenshots of Mr Sollecito’s participation in several groups on the network, including one called “Pastorizia never dies” (meaning “Shepherds never die”) and #accazduro, meaning “with a hard d***”.
A comment which caused particular controversy was a response to someone who asked: “Master, teach me to cancel traces of a murder, as I have a couple of things to solve.” Mr Sollecito replied: “It's easy: s*** on it and nobody will come near [the scene]!
” This was interpreted by some to be a reference to the Kercher murder scene, where faeces was reportedly found in the toilet.
The same group also features numerous jokes about how to kill ex-girlfriends, causing further offence.
He has denied that the comments were connected to Kercher, saying he would “never drag her into it” and was just playing the “game of these groups”.
