Amanda Knox will discover Friday if she is to be definitively convicted of murder as Italy's top court resumes a hearing on the 2007 slaying of British student Meredith Kercher. After hearing final arguments from the defence, judges will retire to consider whether to uphold the convictions of Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. If they do, Sollecito could be taken straight back to jail while the absent Knox is likely to become the subject of a wrangle over whether she should be extradited back to Italy to join him behind bars. Alternatively, the judges could send the case back to the appeal stage, opening the door to possible acquittals for Knox and/or Sollecito.
