Amanda Knox: 'My nasty pasta letter'

Amanda Knox has received thousands of letters of support but also a nasty one from a British person.

The letter from a Briton told her to “Enjoy your next 26 years of pasta”.

The 22-year-old American had been “snowed under” by supportive letters, her mum, Edda Mellas, said.
new balance 574 black Knox was jailed two weeks ago for 26 years for the brutal murder of British student Meredith Kercher, 21, who was found semi naked and with her throat cut.

Knox told journalists from her jail cell that she is scared but hopeful, days after a court in Perugia sentenced her to 26 years in prison for the murder of her British roommate.

She said: “I am scared because I don’t know what’s going on,”

The student told how prison guards “held m” all night after the guilty verdict.

She said of the verdict: “I was feeling horrendous. The guards helped me out. They held me all night.”

Knox is being held in a nine-square-meter (nearly 100-sq.foot) two-bed cell.

Her cell mate is a 53-year-old American woman from New Orleans serving a four-year sentence for a drug conviction.

The cell includes a private bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet.

In Italian jails, inmates can wear their own clothing, and Knox wore a gray-and-white-flecked turtleneck sweater, black legging trousers, white socks and black slippers. Her hair was pulled back in a ponytail.

TVs and newspapers are available, although Knox said she doesn’t watch television or read the newspapers.

The prison was decked out for the holidays, with Christmas trees. During a short tour, the delegation saw a hairdresser, whose services inmates can use once a week.

A pingpong table is among the recreation facilities.

Knox has been in jail for two years since she was arrested after the slaying of Kercher in the house the two students shared in the Umbrian university town.

Knox’s former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, 25, was also jailed. He must serve 25 years. A third man, Ivory Coast national Rudy Guede, was convicted in a separate trial and is serving 30 years.

Her family, as well as a senator from her home state, Maria Cantwell, have spearheaded a vigorous campaign to convince Italian authorities she is innocent.

She said: “I believe in my family. They are telling me to stay calm.”

She added: “My family is the most important thing for me. I also miss going to classes,” she said. “I miss stimulating conversations.”

She said she is in contact with her professors. “We are trying to work out how I can talk to them,” she added, noting that while she can write letters from prison, e-mail access is forbidden.
