Prosecutor Calls Amanda Knox A 'Satanic, Diabolic, She-Devil'

In court yesterday a lawyer representing Patrick Lumumba, the man Amanda Knox falsely accused of murdering Meredith Kercher, said, "Amanda is one thing and another — that is, both Saint Maria Goretti and a satanic, diabolic, she-devil given to borderline behavior." The lawyer, Carlo Pacelli, was referring to a Catholic saint associated with purity, young women and rape victims. He added, "Amanda should be judged based on her personality when the crime occurred in November 2007 and at that time she was a concentrated mix of sex, drugs and alcohol." (Unlike every other college student, apparently.) Knox claims police pressured her into accusing Lumumba.
