On Monday, Oct. 3, an Italian appeals panel cleared 24-year-old Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend of murdering British college student Meredith Kercher. After four years in prison, the two were set free in Perugia, Italy. The Seattle native, arrested for the 2007 crime, was convicted in 2009. Amanda Knox and her boyfriend denied any wrong doing. The Italian court heard testimony from independent forensic investigators who indicated that the evidence in the original investigation may have been contaminated.
