Italy's top court to rule on Knox conviction in Kercher murder

ROME (Reuters) - Italy's highest court will decide on Wednesday whether to uphold former U.S. exchange student Amanda Knox's conviction for the 2007 murder of Briton Meredith Kercher, potentially sparking an extradition battle with the United States.

Knox, 27, and her former boyfriend, Italian Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted for the second time last year in the killing of 21 year-old student Kercher, who was found stabbed to death in a house the women shared in Perugia, central Italy.
