The former boyfriend who was convicted of murder along with Amanda Knox says the 22-year-old American isn't capable of killing anyone. In a prison interview, Raffaele Sollecito described Knox as a "very sweet girl" and said her conviction in the murder of Meredith Kercher was "absurd and inadmissible." As for his own 25-year sentence, the Italian said he was struggling to accept the reality, CNN reports.
"I was certain that the verdict would put an end to a nightmare. Instead, it didn't," Sollecito said. "When the sentencing was read, I didn't understand what was happening and even now it seems impossible and still don't understand why I was convicted." He continued, "If I didn't have faith, I would have ended my life. The world has collapsed on top of me with this verdict. It collapsed on me and Amanda."
