After a two-month break and a Lifetime movie made about her case, Amanda Knox finally returned to appeals court on Saturday.
Six defense witnesses took the stand in the Italian courtroom.
The appeals court decided to allow forensic experts to re-examine evidence allegedly linking Knox to the murder of 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher.
Knox's stepfather talked about Amanda's state of mind with the appeals process resuming, "She's happy that it's started again. it's difficult sitting in prison with nothing happening so when we have court, you know, it's good, it's one step closer to freedom."
Knox was sentenced to 26 years in 2009, the next hearing is set for March 26th.
