Knox makes emotional address in Italy appeal

PERUGIA, Italy Amanda Knox said Saturday in an emotional address to an appeals court that her life had been "broken" by three years in jail. She insists she is not the "dangerous, diabolical" person described by the prosecution.

Knox was convicted last year of sexually assaulting and murdering Meredith Kercher, and sentenced to 26 years in prison. She denies wrongdoing.

Knox was in tears as she said she thinks of Kercher as a dear friend she is "grateful and honored" to have met.

Also on trial is Raffaele Sollecito, Knox's ex-boyfriend, who was sentenced to 25 years.
