American Amanda Knox to be freed immediately.

Perugia, Italy – 3:54PM ET – After four years the murder conviction of American exchange student Amanda Knox has been overturned by a Perugia, Italy court. Found guilty only of accusing an innocent party in the case, Knox has been credited for time served and will quickly leave the country with her family as soon as possible. Knox was arrested and convicted in 2007 for the killing of her roommate Meredith Kercher. During the course of the appeal, much of the evidence presented by the original prosecution was thrown out.
