AMANDA KNOX is finally free of murder charges after Italy’s high court overturned her murder conviction.
The decision by the Supreme Court of Cassation is the final ruling in the case.
It ends the long legal battle waged by Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito to stay free after a lesser court re-tried them in the stabbing death of Knox’s roomie Meredith Kercher in 2007. Kercher was found with her throat slit.
Knox, who awaited the verdict in Seattle, and Sollecito have long maintained their innocence, AP reported.
The Supreme Court of Cassation overturned last year's convictions by a Florence appeals court.
They also said no to another trial.
The judges, after thoroughly examining the case, concluded the evidence could not support a conviction.
The basis for their decision will be released within the next 3 months.
Legal experts called the so-called DNA evidence in the case about as credible as ones found on the multitude of CSI TV dramas
