Amanda Knox

The Italian Supreme Court has ruled that Amanda Knox, the American student studying in Italy convicted and then later dramatically acquitted of killing her roommate will be retried.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Walsh reports from Rome:

Reports saying that the retrial of Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito for the 2007 grizzly murder of her roommate, could begin by this summer. In a stunning reversal today the Supreme Court fully embraced the prosecution's 14 objections to the 2011 acquittal. The lawyer for the family of the victim 21-year-old, Meredith Kercher - said this was a victory for justice. Amanda's lawyers saying she will probably be tried in absentia, but did not rule out that she might return voluntarily to Italy.
