NBC News — A DNA review in the Amanda Knox trial found that some of the DNA evidence used to convict her is unreliable. Twenty three year old Knox was convicted of murdering her British roommate in 2007.
According to a copy of the report obtained by the Associated Press, the report disputes much of the forensic evidence collected against Knox, saying that some of the DNA traces used to convict her may have been contaminated. Prosecutors said that Knox's DNA was found on the handle of a kitchen knife they believed to be the murder weapon. The independent review was ordered by the court handling Knox's appeal.
