Amanda Knox Murder Case: Meredith Kercher Roommate & Ex-Boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito Turn On Each Other As Appeals Cases Loom? [VIDEO]

After individually saying they needed their cases to be considered separately by an Italian court, Amanda Knox and her fellow convicted murderer Raffaele Sollecito may take things one step further and turn on one another in an attempt to each prove their own innocence.

Raffaele Sollecito Visits Home Where Meredith Kercher Was Murdered?

Though they appeared to have put up a somewhat united front in proving their innocence in the past, Sollecito's recent strange behavior of bringing his current girlfriend to the Perugia Italy home where Knox's former roommate Meredith Kercher was found dead in 2007, could force Knox to distance herself from him as she works on an appeals case to overturn her re-conviction by an Italian court.

Sollecito has since spoken out about his being spotted at the Perugia home, telling Gazzetta Del Sud that he was only showing his girlfriend the places in Perugia where he had lived for three years.

Amanda Knox Making Most Of Time In Seattle Before Potential Extradition To Italy?

"I was just showing my girlfriend the places in Perugia where I spent three years of life. That's how we ended up on Via della Pergola," he said. "That place has no particular meaning for me, because I did not experience anything transcendental there. The night of the murder, I was not there."

Strange behavior by both Sollecito and Knox has become a part of the ongoing saga before, as a month after the former lovers were re-convicted in the case, Sollecito interviewed with CNN and shared that he had found some of Knox's behaviors the morning after the murder to be odd.

He talked about how Knox had been with him the night of the murder, but had gone back to her place that morning to shower. When she returned afterwards, she had appeared agitated, and told him she thought someone may have broken into the home, and that she had seen blood in the bathroom.

However, instead of calling police, she had showered and then returned to Sollectio's apartment.

"Certainly I asked her questions," he said in the Feb. 26 CNN interview. "Why did you take a shower? Why did she spend so much time there?"

Though Knox acknowledged her ex's comments at the time, writing on her personal blog that she understood why he said what he did because he is just a scapegoat in the whole case, she may not be as supportive now that he was spotted near the scene of the crime.

"The only reason he has been dragged into this is because he happens to be my alibi," she wrote at the time.

Knox, Sollecito and a third man named Rudy Guede were all arrested in connection to Kercher's death back in 2007. While Guede was convicted of murder and given a 16-year sentence, Knox and Sollecito both pleaded not guilty and served four years in an Italian prison before their convictions were overturned in 2011.

However, earlier this year, an Italian court reconvicted Knox and Sollecito in a retrial focused on DNA evidence. At this trial, Knox was sentenced to 28 years in an Italian prison, while Sollecito was sentenced to 25 years.

At the time of her reconviction, Knox said she would never willingly go back to Italy and serve her sentence.

"I'm not prepared. I will never willingly go back," she said at the time. "I'm going to fight this until the very end."
