Five Years to the Day

Five years ago, American exchange student Amanda Knox was accused of murdering her roommate in some kind of sex and drug -fueled craze.  Now, a 20-year-old American exchange student in Rome is accused of stabbing his roommate 25 times in a drug-fueled haze.  The new crime happened five years to the day after the one involving Amanda Knox.

According to police reports, 20-year-old Reid Schepis and longtime friend and roommate, 19-year-old Fabio Malpeso, mixed ecstacy with alcohol for the first time that night.  Malpeso's sister and boyfriend heard a commotion coming from his room around dawn.  Schepis, who claims to have no memory of the attack, apparently stabbed his friend.  Malpeso is now recovering at a hospital.

Schepis was arrested but released to house arrest at an undisclosed location.
