Judges could officially clear Amanda Knox of the 2007 murder of former Leeds University student Meredith Kercher today.

Italy's Supreme Court will rule whether there are grounds for a retrial against Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

The pair were cleared of 21-year-old Merdeith's murder on appeal, 17 months ago, due to a bungled police investigation.

They were initially jailed after Meredith was found with her throat cut in the house she shared with 25-year-old Knox in Perugia.

A panel of judges will meet in Rome to rule whether legal codes were applied fairly.

They could order a new trial or close the case completely.

Drifter Rudy Guede is already serving 16 years for Meredith's murder
