FLORENCE, Italy —

A Florence appeals court has begun deliberations in the murder trial of U.S. student Amanda Knox in the absence of the star defendant.

The court entered chambers at 10:15 Thursday morning, with the last round of rebuttals by Knox's defense team closing four months of arguments in the third trial for the brutal 2007 murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher.

Knox's lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova told the court he is "serene" about the verdict because he believes the only conclusion from the case files is "the innocence of Amanda Knox."

While Knox awaited the verdict half-world away in her hometown of Seattle, her co-defendant and ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, was in court.

A verdict is expected later Thursday.
