Speaking in Italian, Amanda Knox told the court, "I did not do the things they say I did. I did not kill, rape or steal. I was not there." Said Sollecito, "I am a Mr. Nobody but now they want Mr. Nobody to spend the rest of his life in jail."
ABC is also live-blogging the Amanda Knox appeal verdict. They quote a Twitter rumor that says that, if acquitted, Amanda Knox will go to Rome and get on a waiting plane to America, though the Knox family says that there is no such plane.
The family of Meredith Kercher, who would be 25 years old had she not been murdered, argue that, in the media circus surrounding Amanda Knox, their daughter has been forgotten.
