Parents Visit American Daughter Who is Jailed in Connection to Murder of British Student

Associated Press - December 1, 2007 1:15 PM ET

ROME (AP) - The parents of American student Amanda Knox visited their daughter in jail today. They came a day after a court ruled she must remain in detention despite her proclamation of innocence in the death of her British roommate.

But during the hearing, prosecutors presented the court with an intercepted conversation Knox had with her parents while in jail. In that conversation she appeared to indicate she was indeed in the apartment she shared with Meredith Kercher. Kercher was found dead a month ago in the apartment.

Calls to Knox's attorney, Luciano Ghirga, were not answered Saturday. The La Stampa daily quoted Ghirga as saying that the quote places Amanda in her boyfriend's home, not her own.
