Amanda Knox to face new murder trial

New trial is about money

The Italians who are trying to bring Amada Knox back to Italy are only in need of more money in the judicial coffers [“Knox: ‘My family and I will face this ... legal battle,” NWWednesday, March 27].

This ploy is not about guilt or innocence. It’s all about money. They made millions off the first trial and they want to have a second chance to do it again. The feds need to step in this time and prevent double jeopardy in this ridiculous case. She was acquitted and they can’t have a do-over.
