Amanda Knox En Route To Seattle

Immediately following her release from Italy’s Capanne Prison, Amanda Knox made her way to Rome where she reportedly boarded a British Airways flight bound for London Tuesday morning. From London, Knox and her family will fly to Seattle.

Knox was set free Monday night after an appeals court acquitted her and former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito of the 2007 murder of Meredith Kerscher. Kercher, 21, was found dead in the flat she shared with Knox and two other women on November 2, 2007. She had been sexually assaulted, stabbed and strangled.

Knox and Sollecito, along with Perugia resident Rudy Guede, were convicted of Kercher’s murder in 2009. Knox, 24, was originally sentenced to 26 years in prison while Sollecito, 28, received a 25 year prison sentence and Guede received 30 years. Guede’s conviction was upheld, but his sentence was reduced to 16 years.
