It looks like an Italian appeals court is set to release Amanda Knox at the end of the month. In a stunning defeat for prosecutors, the judge refused to hear from new witnesses, revised records about the DNA tests used at trial, and threw out some of the original DNA results. Apparently, although Amanda's DNA was found on the handle of a 12 inch knife, the judge says the blood found on the blade did not belong to the murder victim. Umm, then whose blood was it? Seriously. I want to know. There was human blood on the blade but the judge is saying it is not the victim. The prosecutors say it is. Human blood does not usually end up all over the blade of a 12 inch kitchen knife.

So, with all the losses piling up, even prosecutors admit that Amanda will probably go free by the end of September when the judge makes his final ruling. Sentenced to 60 years in jail, if freed, Amanda will have served about 2. She will then come back to the United States and go on book tours with Casey Anthony. The victim in this case is Meredith Kercher and you never hear from her parents. You always hear from Amanda's parents. I wonder what Meredith's parents think of all this.
