Gangster to Provide Jailed American Student Amanda Knox With Alibi

Amanda Knox, jailed -- many believe unjustly -- for the brutal
murder of her British roommate. Both girls were attending college
in Italy, in the town of Perugia, when the crime was committed.
A Mafia gangster is to appear in court in Italy in a bid to clear Amanda Knox, it was revealed yesterday. Said gangster likely is a turncoat, as he is going to state it was his own brother, a fugitive, who committed the murder of Brit Meredith Kercher.
"Convicted mobster Luciano Aviello is among five inmates being allowed to speak on behalf of the 23-year-old American," reports The Sun.

"She was jailed 18 months ago for the murder of Brit student Meredith Kercher, 21 - found with her throat cut in her bedroom in a house she shared with Knox in Perugia, Italy.

"Knox is serving 26 years for the murder. But Aviello insists it was his fugitive brother Antonio who committed the crime. He claims he murdered Meredith, of Coulsdon, Surrey, after she disturbed him during a break-in.

"Four other prisoners will help at Knox's appeal, including a killer who says cellmate Rudy Guede, 23 - also convicted of Meredith's murder - said she was innocent. A lawyer said: 'All have important evidence.'"
