On this week's show we will be continuing our discussion of the Amanda Knox & Raffaele Sollecito case. This week’s scheduled guest is  Luca Cheli from Turin, Italy. Luca will discuss his view of the case from his perspective as an Italian citizen. Our topics will include: the Italian Supreme Court’s ruling to send the case back to the appellate level, aspects of Italian law pertinent to this case,  the current legal status of Amanda and Raffaele in Italy, and the current appeal trial taking place in Florence Italy. 
Amanda and Raffaele were wrongfully convicted in December 2009, for the murder of Meredith Kercher in November 2007. Both were acquitted on appeal in October of 2011. Unfortunately, common sense was thrown out the window in March of this year when the Italian Supreme Court overturned the acquittals, sending the case back to the appellate level for  review. The third trial began on September 30, and is expected to wrap up at the end of November.
