Amanda Knox will be the subject of a new Netflix documentary exploring the notorious Meredith Kercher murder case.

The US student was convicted and imprisoned with Raffaele Sollecito for the 2007 murder of Leeds University student Ms Kercher, but after appeals and retrials they were acquitted last year by Italy’s highest court.

Titled Amanda Knox, the documentary will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month before a global launch on September 30.

The case, which made headlines around the world, has previously been the subject of the documentary A Long Way From Home and TV movie Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy.
