What a horrible incident.

In the early morning hours of April 8, Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland and his wife, Katrine Saltara, were stabbed outside of 1OAK nightclub in NYC.

While the details are a bit convoluted, it all started when Chris and Katrine were arguing outside of the venue. According to an onlooker, a man named Shezoy Bleary tried to intervene in the twosome's fight which did not sit well with Copeland.

Sheesh, why do people think violence is ever the answer?!

Thankfully Chris and Katrine are in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital and they're expected to make a full recovery.

NBA legend Larry Bird released the following statement about the incident:

Amanda Knox is a free woman.

On Friday, the Italian Supreme Court overturned her murder conviction for the 2007 slaying of their roommate, Meredith Kercher.

The conviction of Amanda' ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito — who was also found guilty of the crime — was also overturned.

Prosecutors argued that Amanda has orchestrated the murder, having Raffaele and a drifter named Rudy Guede hold down her roommate before slashing her throat.

In a just-released statement, Amanda said she feels "relieved and grateful."

She added:

"The knowledge of my innocence has given me strength in the darkest times of this ordeal."
