PERUGIA, Italy (AP) -- The sister of slain British student Meredith Kercher says the 21-year-old has been forgotten in the trial of Amanda Knox and laments that "it's difficult to keep her memory alive."
Stephanie Kercher spoke to reporters as the eight-member jury deliberated the fate of Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito, who are appealing their 2009 murder convictions.
Stephanie Kercher, her mother and brother were in Perugia for the verdict, expected later Monday. At a press conference, Kercher said her sister "has been most forgotten" in the media circus surrounding the high-profile trial.
Brother Lyle Kercher told reporters it was "too early to talk about forgiveness."
