Following the presentation of closing arguments over the weekend, Amanda Knox's appeals case resumes today and a verdict is expected within the week.
Knox is fighting to overturn her 2009 conviction for killing British student Meredith Kercher two years earlier, in which she was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
The original trial heard how Knox's DNA was found on the handle of a kitchen knife found in her boyfriend's apartment and on which DNA from the victim, but not blood – was found on the blade. However, this forensic evidence has been called into question by the defense and Amanda Knox's family is said to be cautiously optimistic about the verdict because the Italian justice system is so unpredictable.
Today on American Morning, Paul Callan, CNN legal contributor, discusses the evidence in Knox's case and weighs in on the potential verdict.
