Italian prosecutors in Amanda Knox murder case dinged for costly video

Giuliano Mignini / AP

Italian prosecutors in the Meredith Kercher murder case, Giuliano Mignini and Manuela Comodi, have been accused of wasting nearly $240,000 for having a video made showing their version of what took place when Kercher, a British exchange student, was stabbed to death in Perugia, Italy in 2007, according to an article in the British newspaper, The Telegraph.

Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox, of ¬†West Seattle, was convicted in Kercher’s death, but that conviction was later overturned on appeal, with the judge saying the prosecution’s case simply didn’t hold up.

Knox, who was Kercher’s roommate, spent four years in an Italian prison before being released late last year. Her former Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, was convicted along with Knox, but that conviction also was overturned.

The video was based on circumstantial evidence put forth by prosecutors and was meant to show what happened the night Kercher was slain.
