Amanda Knox Court Cites Abandoned Theory of Sex Game Gone Wrong

The Italian Supreme Court handling Amanda Knox’s murder case released its reasoning today and cited prosecutors’ early theory that her roommate Meredith Kercher died in an “erotic game” that got out of hand, a motive that the prosecution abandoned during the initial trial.

Knox spent four years in prison after being convicted of Kercher’s 2007 murder in Perugia, Italy, where they were roommates while studying abroad. Kercher was from England while Knox was from Seattle.
