A woman believed to be Amanda Knox, center, is hidden under a jacket while being escorted from her mother's home to a car by family members Thursday in Seattle. Amanda Knox says she is frightened and saddened by her "unjust" murder conviction in the death of her British roommate Meredith Kercher. Knox's lawyers have vowed to appeal to Italy's highest court. In a statement issued from Seattle on Thursday after her conviction was upheld, Knox blamed overzealous prosecutors and a "prejudiced and narrow-minded investigation" for what she called a perversion of justice and wrongful conviction.Photo by Associated Press /Chattanooga Times Free Press.
