Knox 'disappointed but not dejected' as acquittal overturned

Rome, March 26 - Amanda Knox was disappointed but not dejected after her acquittal for the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher was overturned by Italy's supreme Court of Cassation on Tuesday, according to her lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova. The decision means that Knox's and and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito's appeals trial will be held again, this time in Florence. In 2011 Perugia's appeals court squashed the 26-year and 25-year sentences American Knox and Italian Sollecito were handed respectively at the original trial in 2009. "Last night she was already worried and waiting anxiously," Dalla Vedova said of the Cassation's decision, which had been expected to be announced late on Monday but was postponed until Tuesday. "She had a sleepless night. Today she's disappointed but not dejected, as always, because that's her character. "She is aware of her innocence". Dalla Vedova said he would wait for the Cassation to publish the reasons for its decision before commenting on it.
