Knox: Frightened, saddened by murder conviction
FLORENCE, Italy (AP) -- Amanda Knox says she is frightened and saddened by her "unjust" murder conviction in the death of her British roommate Meredith Kercher.

Knox's lawyers have vowed to appeal to Italy's highest court.

In a statement issued from Seattle on Thursday after her conviction was upheld, Knox blamed overzealous prosecutors and a "prejudiced and narrow-minded investigation" for what she called a perversion of justice and wrongful conviction.

She said she expected more from the Italian justice system.
