The mother of deceased Meredith Kercher will be present in court on Monday to ask the Perugia jury to give the life sentence to Amanda Knox for her daughter’s murder.
Indian-born Arline Kercher, 65, has thus stayed out of the court proceedings in Perugia, but on Monday, October 3, 2011, she will be present, along with Meredith’s brother and sister to hear the final verdict, says ABC news.
The Kercher family attorney Francesco Maresca told the court earlier today that Mrs Kercher was ill and the family could not be in court the way Amanda Knox’s family has been for almost the entire year!
Apparently, Meredith Kercher’s father, John Kercher will not be present, otherwise ABC would’ve included him among the group to be present. But then again, Mr Kercher may very well be in court for his daughter’s killer’s verdict.
In addition to having her throat cut, Meredith Kercher received over 40 stab wounds, which Perugia Police and prosecutors say were hatred fueled! In addition, the two other roommates who were Italian in the four-girl residence claimed that Amanda Knox had it in for Meredith Kercher from the very start.
Amanda Knox was found guilty in 2009 of the murder of Meredith Kercher and was sentenced 26 years, while her then boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was given 25 years. They are now appealing that guilty verdict.
The prosecutors ended their arguments today by saying that Knox was lucky that Italy does not have the Death Penalty!Either way, Ms Knox gets to live and sadly that was not the case for Meredith Kercher…
