Arline Kercher, left, mother of slain British student Meredith Kercher arrives followed by her daughter Stephanie, background left, for a news conference in Perugia, Italy, Monday, Oct. 3, 2011. The sister of slain British student Meredith Kercher has urged the court to weigh the evidence against Amanda Knox and not pay attention to the "media hype" surrounding the high-profile case. Stephanie Kercher spoke to reporters as the eight-member jury on Monday deliberated the fate of Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito, who are appealing their 2009 murder convictions. Stephanie Kercher, her mother and her brother were in Perugia for the verdict, expected later Monday. At a press conference, Kercher said her sister "has been mostly forgotten" and that it was difficult to keep her memory alive. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni) less
