The Amanda Knox murder trial resumed in Italy today, with prosecutors displaying a kitchen knife they say is the murder weapon, the Telegraph reports. One of three court-appointed forensic experts cast doubt on the claim, however, saying the knife isn't compatible with at least one of Meredith Kercher's neck wounds. Knox, on trial with boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, seemed impassive as the knife was displayed and turned away when photos of the victim were shown.
Prosecutors say their case is buttressed by tests that show Knox's DNA on the knife handle and Kercher's on the blade. The defense says the Knox DNA is understandable because she used the knife to prepare food. They disputed the Kercher DNA, calling it too faint to be admitted as evidence. Knox and Sollecito face life in prison if convicted, and the Telegraph says both looked tired and nervous at today's hearing.
