Amanda Knox indicted on slander charges

PERUGIA, Italy (AP) - The first man convicted in the slaying of Amanda Knox's roommate says he thinks she and her ex-boyfriend are the killers, confirming his previous accusations.

Knox says she was "shocked and anguished" at the testimony by Rudy Hermann Guede. In a spontaneous statement seconds after Guede left the courtroom Monday, the American stood up and said "he knows we weren't there" and that she doesn't know what happened the night of the murder.

Guede was convicted in the Nov. 1, 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher. He denies wrongdoing but has admitted being at the crime scene.

Guede is testifying at Knox's appeals trial for her conviction on murder charges.
