amanda KnoxAn Italian court Thursday reinstated the murder conviction of Seattle native Amanda Knox for the stabbing death of Knox's roommate, the latest twist in a dramatic, long-running case that is likely to be appealed again.

Knox, who was in Seattle while the court verdict was reached Thursday night in Florence, was sentenced to 28 1/2 years, while ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, also charged in the case, received 25 years. The pair had been charged with the grisly murder of Meredeth Kercher, a 21-year-old student found stabbed to death in the Perugia villa that she and Knox had rented in 2007.

In a statement, Knox said she was "frightened" and "saddened" by the verdict. She blamed overzealous prosecutors and a "prejudiced and narrow-minded investigation" for what she called a perversion of justice and wrongful conviction.

Knox and Sollecito will appeal the verdict. Their first two trials produced flip-flop verdicts of guilty,then innocent. The pair were acquitted on appeal in 2011 after spending four years in custody, when a court found that important evidence regarding blood and DNA had been handled improperly by investigators.
