A lawyer for Amanda Knox’s ex-boyfriend is making a last-ditch appeal to Italy’s top criminal court to overturn the pair’s murder conviction for the 2007 murder of the American’s British room-mate.

Attorney Giulia Bongiorno began her defence of Raffaele Sollecito in Rome today by offering what she called a “little sampling” of the errors and contradictions of “colossal proportions” in the 2014 Florence appeals court verdict which convicted her client and Knox of killing Meredith Kercher.

Ms Bongiorno noted, for example, that trial documents indicate there were “no traces of Sollecito in the room” where 21-year-old Miss Kercher was sexually assaulted and fatally stabbed.

The high court’s verdict could come late today.

Knox, who was freed in 2011 after an earlier appeals court acquitted her, was awaiting the verdict in Seattle.
