From the DAILY BEAST:
Twenty-three year-old Amanda Knox from Seattle was convicted of murdering her roommate in Italy last year. Now, her defense team has assembled a sharp appeal that could retry the case from top to bottom. Barbie Latza Nadeau, author of Angel Face, on what’s in the brief—and why an acquittal isn’t far-fetched.
The hotels are filling up fast and the TV trucks are already staking their claims beside the colorful holiday merry-go-round on the Piazza Matteotti in front of the medieval courthouse in Perugia, Italy. There is a notable buzz on the second floor of the courthouse as clerks busily prepare accreditation badges for the 140 journalists from all over the world who have applied for access to cover the appellate trial of Amanda Knox. The circus is back in town.
