FLORENCE, Italy — An appeals court in Florence began deliberations Thursday in the third murder trial of U.S. student Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend as the star defendant waited on another continent with, in her words, "my heart in my throat."

Knox's defense team gave their last round of rebuttals, ending four months of arguments in Knox's and Italian Raffaele Sollecito's third trial in the 2007 killing of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, in the Italian university town of Perugia.

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

Presiding Judge Alessandro Nencini said the court would deliberate Thursday for at least seven hours.
