Video: Knox heads home after court victory

  1. Transcript of: Knox heads home after court victory

    MATT LAUER, co-host: And I'm Matt Lauer . You can only imagine the emotions on board that plane this morning as Amanda Knox is traveling home for the first time in four years.

    CURRY: That's right . And we can tell you that she's on this flight to London for a connection to the United States , but Knox was not with her family when they checked in at Rome 's international airport; instead, police had reportedly escorted her through a private entrance.

    LAUER: Meanwhile, it was such an emotional scene in court on Monday. Knox broke down in tears as she learned she was being cleared of murder charges. In a letter released overnight, Knox thanked her Italian supporters for helping her, quote, "survive with hope," end quote. So how's she feeling now, what is next, and what about this appeal? We'll talk exclusively to her defense attorney in just a couple of minutes.

    MATT LAUER, co-host: But we begin with NBC 's Lester Holt who's in Perugia again this morning. Lester , good morning to you.

    LESTER HOLT reporting: Matt , good morning. Amanda Knox is out of Italy on her way back to Seattle this morning. The last we saw of her here, she was being whisked from the prison in a black car. But again, she's in the air on her way home. We've also learned that prosecution here is not taking this decision lying down. It plans to file a formal appeal with the Italian Supreme Court . That could be a lengthy procedure. The bottom line, though, the chances of Knox actually returning to Italy to face that court are between slim and none. The Kercher family, meantime, has reacted. They held a news conference here this morning saying they accept the decision of the court , but they are puzzled because they were told about a narrative of three people killing Meredith Kercher and now two of those charged have been exonerated. So they are puzzled by what this means in terms of whether justice has really been carried out on behalf of their daughter. Meantime, the Italian papers, of course, it's front-page news here. You see here's one, " Liberi ," "Amanda and Raffaele Innocenti," "Amanda and Raffaele are Innocent." Interesting to note the pictures here on the front page . Typically, the Italian papers during this trial would show pictures of Amanda Knox that were tended to lend toward the more diabolical storyline. This is one of the first times we've seen a more humanized face of Amanda Knox in an Italian paper here moments after she was exonerated of the crime . Now my colleague Keith Miller has been here from nearly the beginning of this story and was certainly here for the final and dramatic end and is here with more on last night.

    KEITH MILLER reporting: Well, Lester , it's amazing because the verdict overturning the murder conviction was not based on any technicality or some lack of evidence. In fact, in a stunning declaration and reversal the judge and jury declared that Amanda Knox and her co-defendant did not commit the crime . Inside the prison van speeding her to court , Amanda Knox had no way of knowing which was the verdict would go. All she could focus on was this is it, all or nothing, freedom or a life behind bars. The strain of not knowing clearly etched on her face. The judge in a somber tone, seemed to take forever.

    Unidentified Judge:

    MILLER: "Guilty of slander," announced the judge, the sentence of three years erased by time served . Then the verdict on the charge of murder. The judge declared she was free. Knox collapsed. Family and friends cried openly and embraced. Escorted from the courtroom for the last time, Knox had to be supported by prison guards . Her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito , also found not guilty, was led out of court in obvious shock. Scattered applause and jeers greeted the verdict from the crowds gathered outside the courtroom.

    Ms. DEANNA KNOX (Amanda Knox's Sister): We're thankful that Amanda's nightmare is over. She has suffered for four years for a crime that she did not commit.

    MILLER: Hundreds of Italians shouting shame, shame. Outside Perugia 's main police station just next to the court after the verdict was read a very volatile crowd, very angry, some of them about the verdict , others scattered applause, but also a little bit of tension between the Americans and the Italians over the verdict in this case. Back at the prison to sign out, Knox was greeted by inmates chanting her name, "Amanda! Amanda!" An eyewitness said it was the first time Knox smiled since hearing she was free. Her defense team overjoyed at the outcome said the prosecution built a case on a foundation of mistakes.

    Mr. CARLO DALLA VEDOVA (Amanda Knox's Attorney): There was no evidence, there was no motive, there was no murder weapon, there was no DNA .

    MILLER: And the Knox family finally free to bring their daughter back home to Seattle . She was a 20-year-old exchange student when she arrived in Italy for the experience of a lifetime. Four years later, she leaves Italy with more experience than most people ever achieve in a lifetime. The prosecutor will, of course, file an appeal on the appeals verdict , but it will take some time because, Lester , we're told at least 90 days the current judge has to write up his written decision about how they came to free Amanda Knox and her co-defendant, so it'll be some time before we're back in court .

    HOLT: And some of what was heard outside the courthouse last night, you showed some of the angry reactions, some of the folks there sounded like they believe the American media led to this, and some even were suggesting that there might have been American government influence in that. How much of an undercurrent is there here of an -- of an Italy - America tension?

    MILLER: You know, it started building, I'd say, within a year after the case started. Because everybody in Perugia , and I would say in Italy , thought that Amanda Knox was guilty because the prosecution was leaking information. Then the American media started digging in, started having a look, investigative journalism at its best and started saying, 'wait a second, not so fast' and that led to conspiracy theories, was the government involved, was, you know, the Secretary of State Clinton involved? So it mushroomed and it hasn't gone away.

    HOLT: Well, I know this has been your second home during this four-year ordeal. Keith Miller thanks very much, as always. And, Matt , we're going to send it back to you in New York for more on all this.

Amanda Knox headed home to the United States a free woman Tuesday, after an Italian appeals court dramatically overturned the American student's conviction of sexually assaulting and brutally slaying her British roommate.

The prosecutor said he would appeal the decision releasing Knox and Italian Raffaele Sollecito, her co-defendant and one-time boyfriend. The appeals court overturned the conviction on Monday .

"We will appeal," prosecutor Giuliano Mignini told Reuters. "The (higher) court will decide whether to confirm the first sentence or the second sentence."

According to Italian judicial process, the prosecution cannot file its appeal until the court publishes a formal explanation of its decision, expected in a few months.

Meanwhile, the family of 21-year-old British victim Meredith Kercher appeared overwhelmed at the ruling, saying they were bewildered by the reversal of the 2009 decision.

Meredith Kercher's half-naked body was found in 2007 in the apartment she shared with Amanda Knox in Perugia, Italy.

The case has been a cause celebre in the U.S., and a staple of British tabloids, which took to calling her "Foxy Knoxy." Throughout the four-year case, Knox was portrayed either as a femme fatale with an angel face or a naive young woman caught up in a judicial nightmare.

Controversial
The verdict was controversial. Hundreds of mostly university-age young people gathered in the piazza outside the courtroom in Perugia, jeering and yelling, while Knox's supporters in her home town of Seattle hugged and shouted in joy.

Apathetic Italians moved to anger by verdict

British tabloids played up the drama of Knox's release — and the Kerchers' pain. The Daily Mail headline read, "Weeping Foxy is Freed to Make a Fortune," referring to reports that Knox could earn a hefty paycheck in the U.S. for an exclusive interview.

The 24-year-old Knox arrived at the Rome airport in a Mercedes with darkened windows and boarded a plane for London, where she caught a connecting flight to the United States. She was expected to arrive in the U.S. shortly after 2 p.m. ET.

The major players in the Amanda Knox trial

Speaking to a crowd outside the courtroom on Monday, Knox's sister Deanna thanked her legal team and supporters.

"We're thankful that Amanda's nightmare is over. She suffered for four years for a crime she did not commit," she said. "We are also thankful to the court for having the courage to look for the truth and to overturn the conviction."

'We will see who was right'
Prosecutor Giuliano Mignini expressed disbelief in the verdict, and vowed an appeal to Italy's highest criminal court.

"Let's wait and we will see who was right. The first court or the appeal court," Mignini told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Amanda Knox is led away from court in tears on Monday after being acquitted in the killing of Meredith Kercher.

"This trial was done under unacceptable media pressure. The decision was almost already announced; this is not normal," he said.

If the highest court overturns the acquittal, prosecutors would be free to request Knox's extradition to Italy to finish whatever remained of a sentence. It is up to the government to decide whether such a request is made.

Knox and Sollecito were convicted of sexually assaulting and murdering Kercher, who shared an apartment with Knox in Perugia. Knox was sentenced to 26 years, Sollecito to 25. Both had been in prison since Nov. 6, 2007, four days after Kercher's body had been found at the apartment.

But, the prosecution's case was blown apart by a court-ordered DNA review that discredited crucial genetic evidence.

The jury upheld Knox's conviction on a charge of slander for accusing bar owner Diya "Patrick" Lumumba of carrying out the killing. The judge set the sentence at three years, less than the time Knox had spent in prison.

Knox dissolved into tears as the verdict was read in a packed courtroom after 11 hours of deliberations, and she needed to be propped up by her lawyers on either side. Two hours later, she was in a dark limousine that took her out of the Capanne prison just outside Perugia, where she had spent the past four years, and headed to Rome.

"During the trip from Perugia to Rome, Amanda was serene," said Corrado Maria Daclon, the secretary general of the Italy-US Foundation, a group backing Knox, who was with her in the car. "She confirmed to me that in the future she intends to come back to our country."

'I love you'
On Tuesday, Knox thanked those Italians "who shared my suffering and helped me survive with hope," in a letter to the foundation.

"Those who wrote, those who defended me, those who were close, those who prayed for me," Knox wrote. "I love you, Amanda."

Sollecito, meanwhile, arrived back home near the southern Italian city of Bari before dawn on Tuesday. He was quoted by Italian news agencies as saying he was looking forward to seeing the sea, but he declined to make any appearances after reaching home.

Sollecito's father Francesco said his son remained stunned by the events.

"He is trying to recover himself," Sollecito's father told reporters. "He is going around touching things as if he is a child who needs to take back the things of his life, to acquire forgotten elements."

What's next for Amanda Knox? Interview requests

While waves of relief swept through the defendants' benches in the courtroom, members of the Kercher family, who flew in for the verdict, appeared dazed and perplexed. Her sister Stephanie shed a tear, while her mother Arline looked straight ahead.

"It was a bit of a shock," Stephanie Kercher, the victim's sister, told reporters in Perugia on Tuesday. "It's very upsetting ... We still have no answers."

Lyle Kercher, a brother, said the family is still trying to understand how a decision that "was so certain two years ago has been so dramatically overturned."

A third man was convicted in the slaying, however his trial concluded that he did not act alone. Monday's verdict "raises further questions," Lyle Kercher said.

"If the two released yesterday were not the guilty parties, we are obviously left to wonder who is the other guilty person or people," he added. "For us, it feels very much like back to square one," he said. "It's hard enough that somebody so young died in such brutal circumstances. To have that prolonged ... does make it very difficult."

However, the victim's brother said that the family "accepts the decision that was handed down and respects the court and the Italian justice system."

Stephanie Kercher added the family would not be able to forgive anyone until the truth came out.

"We didn't want people put away for a crime they didn't commit," she said. "It may be a case of waiting another year now to get the truth. We have to leave that to the police ... and the courts."

Lyle Kercher added: "You can't forgive somebody if they haven't admitted something. Who would we be forgiving?"

Slander
The court upheld a conviction against Knox for slander, after she had falsely accused barman Patrick Lumumba of the murders. It sentenced her to three years in prison, a sentence which she has now already served.

Apathetic Italians moved to anger by verdict

The appeal trial gripped attention on both sides of the Atlantic, with an outpouring of sympathy and outrage from many in the United States who saw the American as an innocent girl trapped abroad in the clutches of a medieval justice system.

Supporters celebrated in Knox's home town of Seattle, shouting in triumph as the verdict was carried live on television.

"I'm hugely relieved," said John Lange, who taught Knox's high school drama class at Seattle Preparatory School.

"When I knew her she was kind, hard-working and a team player. There was not a mean bone in her body," he said, wiping away tears with a tissue.
