    ROME (AP) - Italy’s top criminal court says it threw out murder convictions against Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend because there was absolutely no proof they were at the scene of her British roommate’s slaying. The Court of Cassation on Monday issued its formal written explanation, as required by Italian law, for its March ruling vindicating the pair once and for all in the legal battle over the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy.

    The mother of murdered British student Meredith Kercher said she was “surprised and very shocked” by an Italian court’s decision to overturn the convictions of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. Ms Kercher, 21, from Coulsdon, Surrey, was sexually assaulted and stabbed to death in her bedroom in 2007 while studying in Perugia, Italy. ********************* Francesco Maresca, the lawyer for the Kercher family, was also disappointed by the ruling, saying: “I think that it’s a defeat for the Italian justice system.” On Friday night the long-running case appeared to have been brought to a conclusion after more than seven years of...

    The highest court in Italy on Friday has overturned the murder convictions of Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend in the sensational 2007 stabbing death of her British roommate. The ruling was the latest turn in an odyssey of international justice for Knox, who spent four years in an Italian jail after the killing. She has returned to the United States and vowed not to return to Italy. She and the ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted in 2009, then acquitted and freed in 2011. An appeals court overturned the acquittals and ordered a new trial, and they were convicted again last...

    In times of evil, prophets who see it in what Ronald Knox called a “clear light” are not necessarily heeded, though they are desperately needed. Such a man was Hilaire Belloc, as Monsignor Knox described him at Belloc’s funeral Mass in 1953. “By derivation,” Knox explained, a prophet “is one who speaks out.” Belloc, the first truly revisionist historian, made it his life’s work to speak out. He warned of the rise of Islam throughout the early years of the 20th century and then between the two world wars, when such prophecy seemed absurd. In 2006 another great prophet, Pope...

    The appellate court in Florence on Tuesday issued a 337-page explanation for its January guilty verdicts against the American and her former boyfriend Rafaelle Sollecito. American beauty Amanda Knox slit her roommate’s throat with a knife in a fit of rage over being accused of stealing money, the Italian court that convicted her explained Tuesday. The former exchange student from Seattle delivered the fatal slash as cohorts restrained victim Meredith Kercher during a 2007 drug-fueled get together, the judicial panel in Florence asserted in a 337-page document. In their lengthy dissertation explaining the “motivation” behind their guilty verdict, the judges...

    Amanda Knox is in America and she's not going back to Italy. However, Rafael Solecitto -- every bit as innocent -- is an Italian citizen, and they're determined to jail Amanda Knox, but they can't, so they'll jail the guy no one cares about, Rafael. The Italian judicial system has a quirk unlike ours. When a trial court pronounces you culpable, you're not actually convicted of the crime -- not yet. The actual conviction only occurs when a court, sitting in review, confirms the conviction. I believe I read that Italy considers this trial finding of culpability less seriously than...

    Amanda Knox was found guilty of murder today by an Italian court, the latest twist in a murder case that goes back to 2007. The verdict reached by the two judges and six jurors came after several hours of deliberations at the Florence courthouse. The judge sentenced Knox to 28 years in prison. Her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and co-defendant was sentenced to 25 years. Two Italian judges and six jurors began deliberations earlier today. If Knox and her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito are found guilty, the court is also expected to pronounce a prison sentence. The prosecutor...

    Ronald Knox once quipped that "the study of comparative religions is the best way to become comparatively religious." The reason, as G. K. Chesterton says, is that, according to most "scholars" of comparative religion, "Christianity and Buddhism are very much alike, especially Buddhism." But any Christian who does apologetics must think about comparative religions because the most popular of all objections against the claims of Christianity today comes from this field.   The objection is not that Christianity is not true but that it is not the truth; not that it is a false religion but that it is only...

    Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito are anxiously waiting to find out if their acquittal for the murder of a British student will be overturned by Italy's highest court. Supreme Court judges will rule on Monday on whether there should be a retrial regarding the death of Meredith Kercher or if the case against them should be closed completely. In 2011 Knox and Sollecito were cleared of the 2007 murder on appeal after they had initially been found guilty and sentenced to 26 and 25 years respectively. Meredith, 21, was found semi naked and with her throat cut...

    By March 4, 1776, the American forces had been stationed outside Boston for nearly a year. British soldiers had been there longer. For eight long years, Boston had effectively been under martial law. Ever since the Massachusetts House had objected to the Townshend Acts in 1868, the British forces who arrived that October were a constant fixture around town, a continual reminder that to King George III, the colonists – those of Boston, at any rate – were prisoners in their own city. They may have thought they had the rights of free Englishmen, but England’s monarch thought otherwise. After...

    In April of 1775, one of America’s most promising young officers had an idea. A Connecticut merchant who joined up as soon as shots were fired at Lexington and Concord, Arnold was a sharp idea man and a fine strategist, and he approached General Washington with a proposal to lead a mission to Fort Ticonderoga, up at Lake Champlain, to take it from the British. Oh, it was a decent enough prize on its own, sure, but its major value, said Arnold, was the opportunity to acquire all the artillery sitting in the fort. They moved forward and accomplished the...

    An Italian court has rejected a request for new testing of crucial DNA evidence in the Amanda Knox appeal, as a prosecutor predicted the American will be acquitted of the Meredith Kercher murder. Court appointed experts have criticised the way the original forensic investigation was carried out by police, raising hopes 24-year-old Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, 27, will be cleared. Meredith, 21, from Coulsdon, Surrey, was in Perugia as part of her Leeds University and had only been in Italy for two months before she was brutally murdered in 2007. Knox and Sollecito were jailed in December...

Barbie Latza Nadeau, author of the Beast Book Angel Face, says the move could put Knox in prison for life—or set her free. Appeals were filed this weekend in the Meredith Kercher murder case in Perugia, Italy. But Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, who were convicted of Kercher’s murder in December 2009, are not the only ones asking the Perugia appeals court to reconsider their decision. In a surprise twist, Perugia prosecutors are also appealing the court’s ruling. Co-prosecutors Giuliano Mignini and Manuela Comodi...

Or if it is abundantly clear that God has spoken – declaring, for instance, that homosexual behaviour is abominable – his revelation must be steadfastly ignored and the nation directed to conform to the norms of...

Knox talked about fatherhood and other issues the council would work on in a May 11 PBS interview, which aired two days before a May 13 letter – signed by nearly two dozen prominent Catholics, including House Minority Leader John Boehner...

    House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) joined nearly two dozen other prominent American Catholics on Wednesday in calling for President Barack Obama to fire a White House adviser who has attacked the Catholic Church and Pope Benedict XVI. Boehner is the most high-profile public official so far to speak out against the appointment of Harry Knox to the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Knox is director of the Faith and Religion Program at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a homosexual rights organization. Among other things, Knox has accused the pope of “hurting people in the name of...

    Dear Mr. President, On April 6, you named Harry Knox to your Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. You claim to have created this Council, among other things, to “bring everyone together – from both the secular and faith-based communities.” Harry Knox is the hate-filled antithesis of this noble objective. Knox is a virulent anti-Catholic bigot, and has made numerous vile and dishonest attacks against the Church and the Holy Father. He has no business on any Council having to do with faith or religion. We do not know if you or members of your Administration were aware of...

    This is one of the greatest responses to the requests for bailout money I have seen thus far. As a supplier for the Big 3 this man received a letter from the President of GM North America requesting support for the bail out program. His response is well written, and has to make you proud of a local guy who tells it like it is. Dear Employees & Suppliers, Congress and the current Administration will soon determine whether to provide immediate support to the domestic auto industry to help it through one of the most difficult economic times in our...

    Amanda Knox, the American student accused of murdering Meredith Kercher, her British flatmate, claims she regrets having lied in police interviews to incriminate an innocent man. Ms Knox, 21, said she was "afraid" but believes she will be acquitted in the end. On Tuesday Paoli Micheli, the pre-trial judge, ordered both her and Raffaele Sollecito, her former Italian boyfriend, to stand trial on December 4 on charges of murder, sexual assault and theft. He sentenced Rudy Guede, an Ivory Coast immigrant and drifter, to thirty years in prison for the murder under fast track procedures, saying he accepted the "logic"...

    Thank you also, Mr. President, for this honorary degree. It was only a couple of years ago that I stopped paying my student loans in law school. Had I known it was this easy, I would have ran for the United States Senate earlier. You know, it has been about six months now since you sent me to Washington as your United States Senator. I recognize that not all of you voted for me, so for those of you muttering under your breath "I didn't send you anywhere," that's ok too. Maybe we'll hold—what do you call it—a little Pumphandle...

    Funnyman Kevin Knox wasn’t laughing the other night after he got into a nasty fight with a Starbucks barista who told the comedian, who is battling cancer, that he didn’t care about his medical issues - he wasn’t getting a free paper cup! The Comedy Connection headliner, who has become a health nut over the past 3 1/2 years after being diagnosed with cancer in his lymph nodes, reports he made a run to the coffee emporium inside Faneuil Hall Marketplace for a hit of boiling water for his organic, decaf green tea. The barista handed over an extra-large cup...
