Amanda Knox May Return to Italy for Parents' Slander Trial

It seems as though Amanda Knox's history with the Italian legal system has not yet come to a close as the 24-year-old, who, after spending four years in prison, was acquitted of the murder of fellow exchange student Meredith Kercher, will likely be returning to the Italian courtrooms as soon as March, this time as a witness in her parents' defense against slander charges brought by the Perugian police. The charges arise from an interview Curt Knox, Amanda's father, gave to the London Sunday Times in which he said, "Amanda was abused physically and verbally... She told us she was hit in the back of the head by a police officer." If found guilty, the parents could face up to three years behind bars. Amanda Knox will also face first degree slander charges, though her trial date has yet to be set.
