Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito have been found guilty of the murder of Meredith Kercher.

The court in Italy has upheld the conviction of Knox and Sollecito.

Knox was originally sentenced to 28 years in prison and Sollecito was sentenced to 25 years.

They were both charged with murder in 2007 after Miss Kercher was found half-naked and her throat cut in the bedroom of the house they shared in Perugia in Italy.

Knox and Sollecito successfully over turned their convictions in 2011 allowing the pair to walk free.
