A jury in Italy has convicted American college student Amanda Knox of murdering her British roommate and sentenced her to 26 years in prison.

Her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was also convicted and sentenced to 25 years after midnight Saturday.


The 22-year-old Knox and 25-year-old Sollecito were charged with murder and sexual assault in the slaying of Meredith Kercher more than two years ago. All three were studying in Perugia in Italy's central Umbria region at the time.
