With a new verdict in the Meredith Kercher murder case just days away, suspect Amanda Knox has said for the first time that she is prepared to be a fugitive from Italian justice if she is convicted.

Asked what she will do if found guilty on January 30 of killing the British student in Perugia in 2007, Knox said: “In that case I will be… a fugitive.”

The 26-year-old American was convicted of fatally stabbing Ms Kercher in 2009 along with her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, 29. They were acquitted in 2011 on appeal after four years in an Italian jail.

Knox returned to her home town of Seattle to resume her studies before Italy’s supreme court ordered a new trial last year.

A prosecutor has now demanded that she serve 30 years, claiming the supreme court had “razed” the arguments made by the appeal court.

With the new trial coming to an end in Florence, Knox said today she had wanted to return to Italy to appear in court, but was afraid of being arrested, even before a conviction.
