Italy’s highest court of appeal overturned the acquittal of US student Amanda Knox today and ordered a retrial over the murder of her British housemate in what prosecutors said was a drug-fuelled sex attack. Knox and her Italian former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito — originally sentenced to 26 and 25 years in prison for killing and sexually assaulting Meredith Kercher in 2007 — were acquitted on appeal in 2011 after four years in prison.
