Knox was 'victim of a tragic judicial case'

Convicted murderer Amanda Knox is the victim of "a tragic judicial case", her defence lawyer has said.

Knox and and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito are appealing against their 2009 convictions for murdering UK student Meredith Kercher in Italy in 2007.

Defence lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova told the appeals court in Perugia Knox had been "crucified" and "impaled" by news reports of the case.

Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellmann said a verdict would be delivered on Monday.

Daniel Sandford reports.
