Knox acted strangely after murder, admits ex-lover

AMANDA Knox's "odd" behaviour, such as doing cartwheels in the aftermath of the murder of Meredith Kercher, raised the suspicions of Italian police, her former boyfriend writes in a new book about the killing.

In his account of the crime, Raffaele Sollecito, who met Miss Knox a week before the murder, conceded that police found their conduct suspicious.

In 'Honour Bound', which is to be published next week, he insists that they were innocent of the murder of Miss Kercher (21) a Leeds University student who, like Miss Knox, was studying for a year in Perugia. (©Daily Telegraph, London)
