Kercher killer Amanda Knox tried for slandering police

Amanda Knox, the US student convicted of murdering her British housemate in Italy, faces a fresh trial, charged with slandering police officers.

The claims stem from the inquiries into the death of Meredith Kercher in 2007.

At her murder trial, Knox, 23, claimed police hit her on the head during her interrogation. The police denied this.
