Knox "Grateful" After Murder Conviction Tossed

Amanda Knox said she was "incredibly grateful" after Italy's highest court on Friday overturned her and her ex-boyfriend's murder convictions in the 2007 stabbing death of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, NBC News reported. Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were convicted in 2009, then acquitted and freed in 2011. An appeals court overturned the acquittals and ordered a new trial, and they were convicted again last year. Knox was sentenced in absentia to 25 years in prison. Sollecito was sentenced to 28 1/2 years. Knox said in a statement Friday she is "relieved and grateful" after the court's decision. "I'm incredibly grateful...for the justice I've received, for the support that I've had from everyone," an emotional Knox, flanked by her family, told reporters Friday night outside her home. "You've saved my life and I am so grateful that I have my life back." Read »

U.S. Starts Airstrikes in Fight Against ISIS in Tikrit

U.S. warplanes launched airstrikes in Tikrit as part of an allied push to retake the city from ISIS militants, the U.S. military said Wednesday. The airstrikes are "ongoing," according to a Pentagon official. The U.S. military got involved in the offensive to take control of Saddam Hussein's hometown at the request of Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, the military said. Pentagon officials acknowledged that most of the forces trying to drive ISIS from Tikrit are Iran-back militia members. The effort to retake the city has stalled in recent days, but the task force said Iraqi-led forces have surrounded it. Read »

Updates on Violent Detroit Dash Cam Arrest

Dozens of protesters rallied outside a police station in a Detroit suburb on Wednesday after NBC affiliate WDIV released police video appearing to show officers punching, kicking and Tasering a black man who had run a stop sign. "I can't even watch the tape of them beating me, because I get upset," said Floyd Dent, 57, who was arrested in the traffic stop in Inkster, Michigan on Jan. 28. Dent's account of the events differed widely from official police explanations: Police said he tried to flee a police car and threatened to kill the officers, but video shows Dent pulling over safely, and none of the officers' microphones were turned on during the arrest. The protest was organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network; Sharpton is the host of "PoliticsNation" on MSNBC, which is owned by NBC Universal. Read »
