Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox, an American college student studying abroad in Italy, and her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted by an Italian court in 2009 for the murder of Knox's British roommate, Meredith Kercher, two years earlier. After serving four years in prison, Knox and her boyfriend were both acquitted of charges in 2011. In March, Italy's highest court overturned Knox's acquittal; a retrial date has been set for Sept. 30. (Photo by Franco Origlia/Getty Images)
