(Newser) – An Italian judge will review evidence today to decide if Amanda Knox, jailed in Italy for 10 months as a suspect in the killing of 20-year-old British roommate Meredith Kercher, should go free or face a trial, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports. Attorneys will argue both sides of the case in a private hearing examining Knox, 21, and two other defendants.
