New DNA evidence appears to favor Amanda Knox in retrial

KnoxROME – The latest chapter in Amanda Knox’s six-year-long legal battle may be taking a turn in her favor after new DNA tests were conducted on the kitchen knife that prosecutors say was used to kill her former roommate Meredith Kercher, ABC News reports.
On Friday, Italian forensic experts began tests on the crucial – and previously untested – piece of DNA found on the alleged murder weapon.
Defense lawyer Ted Simon tells ABC News that preliminary findings have found no trace of Kercher’s DNA on the knife.
