Amanda Knox Evidence Probe Extended By Italian Court

An Italian court this week was forced to extend the evidence probe in the Amanda Knox case after crucial evidence was not processed in time.

New DNA results in the Knox case is being tested and DNA results were due on Saturday however forensic experts were not able to complete their finding and the court awarded them 40 more days to finish their probe.

Knox was sentenced in December to 26 years in prison for murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher at the residence they shared in the Italian town of Perugia.

Knox spoke to the court in Italian on Saturday, making a plea for her case while thanking the court for their continued pursuit of the truth.

Findings from the case will now be presented on June 30. Two judges and a six person jury will listen to that new evidence.
