Amanda Knox has been found guilty, again, on charges that she murdered her roommate, Meredith Kercher, while the two were students in Italy in 2007.

Knox and her then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted of the murder in 2009, but that conviction was overturned on appeal in 2011.  Since then Knox had returned to the United States.

In the new trial Sollecito received a sentence of 25 years.  Knox’s sentence is 28 years and six months.

Knox was also convicted on an additional charge of slander.

The Associated Press is reporting this morning that Sollecito has been located at a hotel near Italy’s border with Solvenia and Austria at about 1:00am on Friday, January 31, 2014.  Sollecito was apparently staying at the hotel with his current girlfriend.  Sollecito was brought to a local police station, where his passport was taken and his Italian identity papers were stamped to indicate that he cannot leave the country.  Because he was not ordered immediately arrested, Sollecito is expected to be freed, at least temporarily.
