Raffaele Sollecito's lawyer Giulia Bongiorno, right, arrives at Italy's highest court building, in Rome, Friday, March 27, 2015. American Amanda Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend expect to learn their fate Friday when Italy's highest court hears their appeal of their guilty verdicts in the brutal 2007 murder of Knox's British roommate. Several outcomes are possible, including confirmation of the verdicts, a new appeals round, or even a ruling that amounts to an acquittal in the sensational case that has captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino )ROME (AP) — Lawyers for Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend made a final appeal to Italy's top criminal court Friday to overturn the pair's murder conviction for the 2007 slaying of Knox's roommate, saying there were errors of "colossal proportions" in the guilty verdict.

French gendarmes and investigators sift through the scattered debris on March 26, 2015 at the crash site of the Germanwings Airbus A320 in the French Alps above the southeastern town of SeyneThe Germanwings co-pilot who flew his Airbus into a French mountainside, killing all 150 aboard, suffered serious depression, a German newspaper reported Friday, raising new questions over how he was cleared to fly. The black box voice recorder indicates that Andreas Lubitz, 27, locked his captain out of the cockpit on Tuesday and deliberately sent Flight 4U 9525 into the Alps, French officials say, in what appears to have been an act of suicide and mass murder. Lubitz sought psychiatric help for "a bout of serious depression" in 2009 and was still getting assistance from doctors, Bild daily said, quoting documents from Germany's air transport regulator Luftfahrtbundesamt (LBA). He was still receiving regular medical treatment, Bild reported, adding that Germanwings' parent company Lufthansa had transmitted this information to the LBA.
