Amanda "Foxy Knoxy" Knox, the American accused of murdering her study-abroad roommate Meredith Kercher in a kinky sex experiment gone awry was in court yesterday, out in public for the first time since she was accused of Kercher's murder late last year. Today's court appearance was an initial hearing, and the judge will probably hold six or seven more hearings before deciding whether to try Knox and her alleged accomplices, boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Hermann Guede, for murder next month, the Daily Mail notes. There have been reports earlier this year that cast some doubt on Foxy Knoxy's guilt, so this trial should be quite intriguing. Fellow true crime enthusiasts, we will keep you updated on the proceedings! [Daily Mail]
This case makes me sick— there's been a lot of slut-shaming aimed at Knox, the prosecutor has been portrayed as having a mad-on to convict her for no good reason, there's an undercurrent of xenophobia/racism, her confession was supposedly beaten out of her... for obvious reasons, the Seattle press has covered this pretty extensively, but I am fuzzy on the details as it's only 8:40 here.
