American student Amanda Knox is waiting half a world away for the third Italian court verdict over the 2007 killing of her British room-mate, 21-year-old Meredith Kercher.
Knox and her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were first found guilty of murder, then acquitted by an appeals court. Italy's highest court then set aside the acquittal and sent the case back to another appeals tribunal.
That court, in Florence, is set to deliberate today.
Knox chose to remain in Seattle during the third trial, saying she feared a wrongful conviction in Italy.
