FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Defense lawyers for U.S. student Amanda Knox and her Italian former boyfriend will get their final say in the defendants’ third trial for the gruesome 2007 murder of Knox’s British roommate.

The prosecution also will make its final rebuttals Monday, the last hearing day scheduled in the trial ahead of the verdict later this month. Judge Alessandro Nencini said that each team will get 30 minutes for its last word so that deliberations can start as planned Jan. 30.

Prosecutor Alessandro Crini has demanded 26 years for each defendant for the murder, and that the court increase to four years Knox’s three-year sentence for slander. The two were freed on appeal in 2011, but Italy’s highest court ordered a second appellate trial after blasting the acquittal.
