Amanda Knox Retrial Appeal Separate From Raffaele Sollecito’s Case; Ex Boyfriend’s Lawyer Orders To Distance Himself From “Foxy Knoxy”

The Amanda Knox retrial appeal is separate from the case of ex-boyfriend Rafaele Sollecito, who was advised by his own lawyer to distance himself from the convicted killer who has become known in the media as "Foxy Knoxy."

In a statement sent to media outlets, John Q. Kelly said that it's "imperative that the Italian courts consider Raffaele's case separate from Amanda's case."

"By necessity, he has to distance himself and his case from Amanda and her case. The facts and the evidence with regard to each of them is (sic) entirely different," the lawyer added.

Amanda Knox is considered as a villain in Italy, Reuters reported, although being bandied in the United States as the poster child of a faulty Italian justice system. "Foxy Knoxy" spent four years in Italian jail before exonerated from the crime.

Amanda Knox went home believing herself to be free up until an Italian appellate court overturned judgment and sentenced her to 28 and ½ in prison while Raffaele Sollecito was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the murder of Meredith Kercher in 2007.

Raffaele Sollecito's defense seems to be going the separate route as the Italian recently threw former girlfriend Amanda Knox under the bus.

The convicted killer told CNN that he found Amanda Knox's behavior right after the murder strange. He narrated that the pretty American spent the night with him after dating for a week and went back to the flat she shared with Meredith Kercher.

When she returned, Amanda Knox seemed to be very "agitated."

And instead of calling the police after telling Raffaele Sollecito that somebody broke into their room and killed the British student, Amanda Knox took a shower instead.

But Raffaele Sollecito quickly added that "there is nothing against me and nothing very strong against Amanda. "And in my case, I really did nothing wrong, and I don't want to pay for someone else's peculiar behavior."
