More than a year after she was found guilty of murdering her roommate, Amanda Knox's conviction was overturned by Italy's highest court. The former exchange student was convicted twice of killing Meredith Kercher; first in 2009 and, following a dismissal on appeals, in January 2014.

Knox and her then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were accused of killing Kercher in 2007, when Knox and Kercher were college students studying abroad in Italy. Both were convicted in 2009, and then acquitted in 2011, after serving four years in prison.

Two years later, Knox and Sollecito were ordered to stand trial again for the killing. Knox remained in Seattle throughout the trial; Sollecito stayed in Italy and was arrested attempting to flee to Austria following the guilty verdict. He was sentenced to 25 years while Knox received a 28.5 year sentence. Sollecito's conviction was also overturned today.
