Two-month break in Knox murder trial

Defence witnesses in the Meredith Kercher trial in Italy have cast doubt on some of the DNA evidence that has been put before the court.

American Amanda Knox and her then boyfriend Raffaelle Sollecito deny murdering the British student in 2007.

It's the last day of the trial before a summer break, lasting almost two months.

Knox's mother Edda Mellas said the Italian holiday is a big disadvantage for them,

"The prosecution was able to take avery long time to slowly present their case.

"The defence was getting kind of squished we had to kind of hurry to get some things in before this really long break."
