Child killer says he can 'clear' Amanda Knox

A convicted child murderer has told a court he has information which could clear Amanda Knox, who was found guilty of killing her British roommate. 23-year-old American Knox is appealing against her murder conviction for killing 21-year-old Meredith Kercher in 2007.

Mario Alessi told the appeal about a prison confession made to him by Rudy Guede, who was also convicted, in a separate case of killing Miss Kercher. He said Guede confided that Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were innocent.
