Breaking News: Italian Court Claims Amanda Knox And Meredith Kercher Fought Over Money The Night Kercher Was Murdered

Among details revealed in a lengthy legal document just released today in Italy is that former roommates Amanda Knox and Meredith Kercher fought over money the night Kercher was murdered.

It is also claimed that Kercher was attacked by multiple assailants, but that it was Knox “who lashed the deadly wound to the throat.

Judges from the appellate court in Florence who handed down the guilty verdicts to then boyfriend Rafaelle Sollecito and Amanda Knox this past January also claim that Kercher was stabbed by two different knives, with Knox wielding one of them.

The release of the 337-page document is part of the process leading to the appeal of the January guilty verdicts by the Supreme Court of Cassation.

The document also states:

It is a matter of fact that at a certain point in the evening events accelerated; the English girl was attacked by Amanda Marie Knox, by Raffaele Sollecito, who was backing up his girlfriend, and by Rudy Hermann Guede, and constrained within her own room.

Rudy Guede if you may recall had a history of petty crime and was convicted separately of stabbing and sexually assaulting Kercher, and he fled to Germany after the murder. He acknowledges that he was in Kercher’s room the night she died but denies killing her. Guede was sentenced to 30 years in prison but had it reduced to 16 on appeal.

    I am no longer surprised by the complete b.s. that prosecutors will pull out of their a$$es in the absence of real evidence. If this allegation of a monetary argument had any basis in fact, they would have come to light a very long time ago.

    It appears to me that the Italian courts have the same inability to simply admit they made a mistake that so many courts in the U.S. have. The Italians just aren’t as good at lying without being blatantly transparent about it.

    I continue to support Amanda Knox, and feel so frightened for her to still have to be going through all of this.

    The Italian ‘court’ has been ‘CLAIMING’ things the entire time!! How is this any different. If you though tyranny was dead, travel to Italy!

    This reminds me of so many stories we see on TV. From Game of Thrones to the Valley of Elijah, they always had to arrest someone, right or wrong, just someone. So in order to save face, they keep coming back to Amanda, right or wrong,because someone has done this, so it must be the American, right?? They need to man-up and admit they have nothing but what is evident.

    Amanda and Raffaele are innocent !!! So if the death of Meredith was a fight over money , the sex game gone wrong was a LIE , UNTRUE , pure fabrication by the prosecutor Mignini , who knowingly committed perjury to pervert the course of justice . If that hypothesis was untrue , why not the argument over money . There was no DNA evidence to show that Amanda and Raffaele were in Meredith’s room , there was none of Meredith’s blood on Raffaele’s kitchen knife which had never left his apartment until taken randomly by the police . This whole case from the beginning makes a mockery of Italian Justice !!! Mignini got it all wrong from the beginning , by the time Guede was discovered to be the murderer , it was too late to admit a mistake . Now we have the supreme court and Italian Justice System trying to cover for him with another pack of lies !!!

    Is it just me or does Amanda Knox and her ex boyfriend Raffaele look like they could be brother and sister!?
    The likeness is uncanny to me and even deceptive if they ever wore eachothers clothes or were aware themselves of how much they looked alike.
    Totally off topic and nothing at all to do with this discussion but I can’t get over how much they look alike, especially since Amanda cut her hair into a bob which now matches Raffaele’s “euro shag”! 🙂
