Amanda Knox Trial: Live Coverage Of Verdict

An Italian jury reportedly has reached an agreement on the verdict in the appeal of Amanda Knox, the 24-year-old American who stands trial for the murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher in Italy four years ago. Knox was earlier found guilty and convicted to over twenty years in prison, but she has appealed the sentence.

Earlier today, Knox made a final plea before the court of Perugia to convince the jury and judges that she did not kill Meredith Kercher. "I'm paying with my life for things that I didn't do," Knox reportedly told the jury. Knox reportedly sat out the jury's deliberations in the prison chapel.

Court officials have announced that the verdict will be read around 3:30 pm EST. Watch live coverage from Perugia below:
