Amanda Knox's Father Says Summations 'Couldn't Have Gone Any Better'


Amanda Knox Case Goes to Final Days

After the killing, Guede went to a disco. "Goes to a disco!" Dalla Vedova repeated emphatically as if to emphasize his lack of caring.

It wasn't until October 2009, a year after the murder, that Guede began to implicate Knox and Sollecito, the lawyer said.

He also accused the prosecution of moving too fast, being too quick to blame someone for Kercher's death, and violating Knox's civil rights in their determination to find a culprit.

She was a "20 year old, young girl. A child," Dalla Vedova said. She didn't speak Italian, she wasn't allowed to call a lawyer and her parents weren't alerted, he said.

Knox and her family looked more relaxed today as the grueling appeals process -- and possibly her four year prison ordeal -- are nearing an end. She nodded at her family while entering court today amid a barrage of camera flashes from the media and mouthed "bongiorno."

The stages of the appeals process include rebuttals for both sides. The last people to address the jury will be Sollecito and Knox.

Knox has been working on her statement for more than three months, her family has said.
