Amanda Knox to spend second birthday in jail

The mother of Amanda Knox says her daughter, who is on trial for murder in Italy, will be receiving many greeting cards, books and T-shirts for her birthday.

ROME —

The mother of Amanda Knox says her daughter, who is on trial for murder in Italy, will be receiving many greeting cards, books and T-shirts for her birthday.

The former University of Washington student, who has been jailed since shortly after the 2007 slaying of a British student, will spend a second birthday in jail when she turns 22 on Thursday.

Her mother, Edda Mellas, predicted to reporters after Monday's court session that it would be her daughter's last birthday behind bars. Knox's family has expressed confidence she will be acquitted.

Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito are on trial in the death of Knox's roommate, Meredith Kercher, in Perugia in central Italy. They both deny wrongdoing.
