Italy's top court was Friday considering whether to definitively convict Amanda Knox for murder in what could be the final act of an eight-year legal drama dripping with blood, sex and intrigue.

The American and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted last year for a second time of taking part in the brutal 2007 killing of Meredith Kercher, a British student with whom the then 20-year-old Knox shared a house in the university town of Perugia.

Lawyers for the pair were due to present final arguments, before the Court of Cassation judges retire to consider whether to confirm once and for all that the Italian judicial system regards the convictions as safe. (AFP)
