Knox to face trial for slander

An Italian court yesterday ordered the jailed American student Amanda Knox  to stand trial for slandering police officers during the investigation into the killing of her British roommate.

PERUGIA, Italy – An Italian court yesterday ordered the jailed American student Amanda Knox to stand trial for slandering police officers during the investigation into the killing of her British roommate. Knox, whose trial created a global media sensation, was sentenced to 26 years of jail in December for her part in the murder of Meredith Kercher after what judges said was a frenzied sex game that spiraled out of control.

Knox was charged with slandering police after accusing officers of beating her during the investigation.

Kercher’s partly unclothed body was found in November 2007, locked in her blood-spattered bedroom in the house she shared with Knox and two other students in the university town of Perugia. It had a deep stab wound in the throat.
