Amanda Knox retrial ordered as court rules Meredith Kercher murder 'WAS sex game gone wrong'Italys hi

gh court has ordered Amanda Knox back for retrial over the murder of British stu

dent Meredith Kercher after determining that her acquittal was flawed and the death WAS a sex game gone wrong. The acquittal full of deficiencies, contradictions and illogical conclusions, the high court ruled, ordering a fres

h look at all the evidence to determine whether she did kill her flatmate Ms Kercher, 21. In March, the Court of Cassation overturned Knoxs acquittal in

the 2007 murder and ordered a new trial. The court has now issued its written reasoning. Ms Kerchers body was found in November 2007 in her bedroom of the house she shared with Knox in Perugia. Knox, now 25, and her Italian ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, 29, were initially convicted and sentenced

to lengthy prison terms, but a Perugia appeals court acquitted them in 2011, criticising virtually the entire case mou

nted by prosecutors. Murdered: Meredith Kercher was killed in Perugia in 2007 (Image: Chris Grieve) The appellate co

urt noted that the murder weapon was never found, said that DNA tests were faulty and that prosecutors provided no murder motive. A man from Ivory Coast, Ru

dy Guede, was convicted of the murder in a separate hearing and is serving a 16-year sentence. In the 74-page Cassation ruling, the high court judges said they had to recogn

ize that he (Guede) was not the sole author of the crime. The judges though said he was the main protagonist. They said the new appeal process would serve to not only demonstrate the presence of the two suspects in the place of the crime, but to possibly outline the subjective position of Guedes accomplices. It said hypotheses ran from a simple case of forced sex involving Kercher to a group erotic game that blew up and got out of control.

the Perugia appeals court for multiple instances of deficiencies, contradictions and illogical conclusions. Th

e new court must conduct a full examination of evidence to resolve the ambiguities, it said. Knox left Italy a free woman after her 2011 acquittal, after serving nearly four years of a 26-year pr

ison sentence.

Now a student in Seattle, she has called the reversal by the Cassation painful but said she was

confident she would be exonerate

d. Italian law cannot compel her to return for the new trial and her lawyers have said she has no plans to do so. No date for the new trial has been set. Florences appeals court wa

s chosen since Perugia only has one appellate court.
