(Newser) – A bloody shoe print discovered beneath the body of Meredith Kircher links roommate Amanda Knox to her murder, Italian prosecutors charged in court yesterday. Defense attorneys denied the print belonged to the Seattle woman, who complained about treatment by Italian police after her British roomie was found murdered. "I was treated as a person only after I had given my statements. They offered me drinks, allowed me go to the lavatory and so on," Knox testified.
