New appeal verdicts for the two people accused of murdering Coulsdon student Meredith Kercher are expected to be announced today.

US citizen Amanda Knox has denied any involvement in the killing of Ms Kercher, who was found with her throat slashed in the bedroom of the house they shared in Perugia, central Italy.

She was convicted along with her Italian former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito following a high-profile trial, but the pair were later cleared in 2011 after an appeal court criticised large swathes of the case against them.

But last year a new appeal was ordered to take place after the Italian Supreme Court dismissed the 2011 ruling as being flawed.

If Knox is found guilty it is likely Italy will face a lengthy extradition battle to get her from the States.
