AMANDA Knox and her former boyfriend should be retried for the murder of Coulsdon student Meredith Kercher, Italian judges have ruled.
The Supreme Court judges ruled today (Tuesday) to annul the October 2011 acquittal of Knox, 25,  and Rafaelle Sollecito, 29, after prosecutors argued it overlooked key evidence.
Meredith, then 21, was found dead in November 2007 in the bedroom of the house she shared with Knox in Perugia, Italy, where they had been studying Italian.
Ivorian immigrant Rudy Guede was convicted in October 2008 of her sexual assault and murder.
Meredith's sister, Stephanie, spoke this week of "unanswered questions" around her sister's death.
The retrial will take place at the appeals court in Florence.
It is not clear whether U.S. authorities would agree to extradite Knox, who returned to her home state of Washington in 2011.
