For 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher, spending a year studying in Italy was a dream come true. But within months of arriving in the medieval town of Perugia, that dream quickly turned into a nightmare.

What unravelled next was one of the most polarising murder cases in Italy’s history, with one young American woman at the centre of it all – 22-year-old Amanda Knox.
