Sollecito 'annihilated' by sentence (ANSA) - Florence, January 30 - Raffaele Sollecito looked "annihilated" by his 25-year sentence for the 2007 murder of his American ex-girfriend Amanda Knox's flatmate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, his lawyer said.

The 29-year-old information technology graduate from Puglia was struck dumb after hearing the guilty verdict on TV, Luca Maori said.

Sollecito's passport will be confiscated pending an appeal to the supreme court.

Knox is in her hometown, Seattle.
