Rome (WSYR-TV/CNN) – An Italian Supreme Court judge ruled on Tuesday that American Amanda Knox should stand trial again for the death of her former roommate in Italy.
Knox spent four years in prison before an appellate court overturned her murder conviction in the 2007 death of Meredith Kercher.
The judge also ruled that he then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who was acquitted with her, face a new trial over Kercher's death.
She returned to the United States in 2011, and was not in Italy for the hearing. ABC News says
the ruling does not mean Knox would be required to return to Italy immediately.
She would not be required to return to Italy for the trial and if she is convicted again, that ruling would be appealed up to the Supreme Court.
