GIST: "Amanda Knox should be sentenced to 30 years in jail for the 2007 killing of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, prosecutor Alessandro Crini told an appeals court in Florence today. Crini made the request after making a seven-hour plea yesterday for the conviction of Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito for the 2007 murder of Kercher in Perugia, Italy. The request was confirmed by phone by Knox’s lawyer Luciano Ghirga. Crini asked for a 26-year jail term for Sollecito, Ghirga said. “We obviously aren’t in agreement,” he said."
