ROME (AP) — A Florence appeals court has set Sept. 30 as the start date for the retrial of Amanda Knox in the 2007 death of her British roommate.

In March, Italy’s highest court overturned Knox’s acquittal, faulting the lower court for “deficiencies, contradictions and illogical” conclusions in freeing Knox of West Seattle and her onetime boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito. It ordered a new appeals court to consider all the evidence to determine if they helped kill Meredith Kercher.

Kercher family attorney Francesco Maresca said Tuesday the Florence court would begin hearings on Sept. 30. Knox, who returned to Seattle after her 2011 acquittal, is not expected to attend.

Kercher’s body was found in her bedroom of the house she shared with Knox in Perugia. Kercher had been stabbed in the neck.
