A combination of two file photos shows Raffaele Sollecito (R) and Amanda Knox, the co-accused in the 2007 murder of Meredith KercherJudges at Italy's top court worked into the evening Friday mulling whether to uphold the murder conviction of Amanda Knox in what could be the final act of an eight-year legal drama. American Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted last year for a second time of taking part in the 2007 killing of Meredith Kercher, a British student with whom Knox, then 20, shared a house in the university town of Perugia. In final arguments to the Court of Cassation, Sollecito's lawyer said last year's ruling in Florence had been flawed, citing summing up mistakes on the number of stab wounds inflicted on Kercher's neck and a bloody footprint being described as that of a woman, when it belonged to a man. "This is just a small taste of the mistakes that mean this verdict was a miscarriage of justice," Giulia Bongiorno told the court.
