Knox, 23, and her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, were found guilty last year of killing 21-year -old British student Meredith Kercher by slashing her throat with a knife during a violent, drug-fueled sex game, reports the New York Post.
Prosecutors called Knox a 'coiled spring filled with vengeance because her 'prissy roommate' had criticized her grooming and sexual habits. After an 11-month trial, Knox was convicted of murder, sexual assault and other charges in Italy and sentenced to 26 years in prison.
