An Italian juror who helped re-convict Amanda Knox has revealed “grave doubts” about the American’s involvement in her British roommate’s death.

Knox and her Italian boyfriend Rafaelle Sollecito were sentenced to 26 and 25 years respectively for the 2009 murder.  They both served 4 years of their sentences before being released on appeal in 2011.  Knox returned to the U.S. and was convicted in absentia last year.

Genny Ballernini, a member of the jury panel who reinstated Knox’s conviction, said that the case had “questionable” evidence.  The final appeal in the case will be decided this week.  If Knox loses her appeal, Italy may request extradition from the U.S
