    Sollecito Uses Murdered Kercher For Uni Essay Wed, Jul 16, 2014

    Convicted killer Raffaele Sollecito has graduated from university by writing a thesis describing how he is innocent of the murder of Meredith Kercher. Sollecito, 30, who was convicted along with former girlfriend Amanda Knox, 26, wrote in his computer studies masters paper that online networks showing his name and commenting on the brutal knife murder were more often linked to the word "innocent" than "guilty". Knox sentenced to 28 years in prison and Sollecito 25 years, although both are free as the Italian judicial system allows for another appeal, with no decision expected until next spring at the earliest. On his Facebook page, Sollecito posted several pictures of himself smiling and celebrating with his family and girlfriend Greta, as he received his degree from professors at Verona University.

  • Knox-ex boyfriend says not together for whole night of Kercher murder
    Knox-ex boyfriend says not together for whole night of Kercher murder Tue, Jul 1, 2014

    The former boyfriend of Amanda Knox, on trial with her for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, distanced himself from his co-defendant on Tuesday, saying the two had not been together for the whole evening when the crime took place. Raffaele Sollecito, convicted alongside Knox of the murder in 2009 and cleared on appeal four years later, was reconvicted in January this year after a retrial and sentenced to 25 years in prison. "My name is Raffaele Sollecito, not Amanda Marie Knox, I have to respond as Raffaele Sollecito," he said. His lawyer Giulia Bongiorno said Sollecito had been concerned to read in the court's written reasoning for the January verdict that evidence from Knox's mobile telephone showed the couple had not been together for the whole evening of Nov. 1, when Kercher was murdered.

"My name is Raffaele Sollecito, not Amanda Marie Knox, and I must answer as someone whose name is Raffaele Sollecito," he said. Sollecito and Knox have been convicted by an appeals court in the murder. More »

  • Amanda Knox 'Not with Lover Raffaele Sollecito Minutes before Meredith Kercher's … Tue, Jul 1, 2014

    Raffaele Sollecito maintained he believes Amanda Knox didn't kill British student Meredith Kercher, although his lawyers are seeking to distance him from his co-defendant and ex-lover as part of a new defence strategy. Sollecito's lawyer Giulia Bongiorno told a press conference in Rome that Knox lied to her client about key evidence in the case, proving that the two were not together minutes before Kercher was killed. Kercher, from Croydon, south London, was found with her throat slashed inside the apartment she shared with Knox in the university town of Perugia, central Italy, on 1 November 2007. Bongiorno said that Knox and Sollecito spent that night together at his home, but were apart earlier in the evening. More »

  • 'Home Alone' Raffaele Sollecito to Abandon Amanda Knox in Final Appeal … Mon, Jun 30, 2014

    Raffaele Sollecito will appeal against his conviction for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher by distancing himself from his co-defendant and ex-lover Amanda Knox and potentially incriminating her. Sollecito's lawyers were variously quoted in the Italian press as saying that Sollecito "was home alone that night" or that he is "only sure about the fact that he was at home", leaving open the possibility that Knox was not there. Regarding the change to his defence, Sollecito's lawyers, Luca Maori and Giulia Bongiorno said their client will "think only about himself," as he appeals to Italy's top court against the long jail sentence he was handed in January. IBTimes UK contacted Sollecito's defence team for a comment but received no reply before publishing. More »

    Is that Amanda Knox? New CCTV footage Could Challenge Alibi on Night of Meredith … Tue, May 6, 2014

    CCTV footage appearing to be Amanda Knox could challenge her alibi that she was with her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito on the night Meredith Kercher was murdered six and half years ago. The CCTV footage shows a woman who looks like Knox walking through a car park near to the house she shared with Kercher in Perugia on the night of the murder.  Knox was re-convicted of her former flat-mate's murder this year along with Sollecito and this footage, shown on Italian TV, has emerged as fresh evidence in the trial.  It also claims Kercher is seen on the film two minutes before, heading back to the house.

    CCTV footage has emerged that could challenge Amanda Knox's alibi on the night Meredith Kercher was murdered. The American, who this year was re-convicted of murder after a second trial, has always said she was with then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito on the night of the killing. Quarto Grado also says that Rudy Guede, the only person jailed for the murder, was recorded by the same video camera earlier in the evening. An author who wrote a book on the case, Barbie Latza Nadeau, told The Times the video was known about but neither side chose to use it in court. More »

    Italy court says Knox murdered flatmate over argument, not orgy Tue, Apr 29, 2014

    By Silvia Ognibene FLORENCE Italy (Reuters) - The Italian court that found American student Amanda Knox guilty of murder in January, said on Tuesday she had killed her British flatmate because of a domestic argument, rather than during a sex game, and that she herself had wielded the knife. Knox spent four years in an Italian jail after a court found that she and her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, had murdered 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher in 2007. Knox and Sollecito both proclaim their innocence. A third person, Ivory Coast-born Rudy Guede, who was tried separately, is serving a 16-year sentence for his part in Kercher's murder at the university town of Perugia. More »

    Italian judges said that Meredith Kercher was killed after an argument erupted in the house she was sharing with US student Amanda Knox in the town of Perugia. In an almost 400-page verdict explaining prison sentences imposed on Knox and her ex-Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, judges at Florence appellate court dismissed an earlier assertion that the 21-year-old British student was murdered because she had refused to take part in a brutal sex game. Kercher, 21, from Croydon, south London, was found in November 2007 with her throat slashed inside her room in the apartment she shared with Knox in the university town of Perugia. Judges said it is beyond any reasonable doubt that Knox, Sollecito and Rudy Guede, a drifter from the Ivory Coast, were there at the time of the murder and took an active part in it. More »

    A controversial Italian journalist has been accused of insulting the memory of Meredith Kercher after he suggested the British student was too ugly to be the object of unwanted sexual attention by her alleged murderers, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. Vittorio Feltri, 71, outraged viewers of Linea Gialla news show on La7 television when he crudely asked Sollecito, who was in the studio, if he was sexually attracted to Kercher. "Did you want to f** her?" Feltri asked. "I want to understand why he [Sollecito] had to kill her. More »

    The ex-boyfriend of Amanda Knox is distancing himself from the U.S. former exchange student, convicted of murdering her British roommate in an Italian university town, as he pursues his own appeal in the case, his U.S.-based lawyer said on Wednesday. Italian Raffaele Sollecito was convicted of murder along with Knox at a retrial last month in the 2007 stabbing death of Meredith Kercher, in a decision that reversed an earlier appeal judgment that cleared the pair. The facts and the evidence with regard to each of them is entirely different," said Kelly, who acts as Sollecito's spokesman in the United States. Kercher, 21, was found stabbed to death in her bedroom in the apartment she shared with Knox in Perugia. More »

    Raffaele Sollecito appears to be distancing himself from Amanda Knox, questioning her actions immediately after the death of Meredith Kercher. Last month Sollecito and Knox were re-convicted of the British student's murder in Perugia in 2007. Italy's Supreme Court quashed both their acquittals last year on the premise that the appeals process had not been handled correctly. But in a new twist, Sollecito, 29, who has always defended his ex-lover, has admitted on Italian television that he still has unanswered questions about Knox's behaviour on the morning Kercher's body was found.
