Amanda Knox allegedly had a sex affair with an Italian cocaine dealer whose associate was once arrested for stabbing his own brother, publications in both Italy and Britain have claimed, citing police reports and magisterial interviews.

The newest revelation in the ongoing saga surrounding the 2007 stabbing of British student Meredith Kercher, Knox's roommate in Perugia, Italy, comes as Knox and her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, face potential 28- and 25-year prison sentences, respectively. The pair — who dated for only a week before the murder of then-21-year-old Kercher — have undergone a trial and two appeals, being found guilty, not guilty, then guilty again.

According to The Telegraph (UK), Italian tabloid Giallo reported that the cocaine dealer met Knox on a train from Milan to Florence, and shared a marijuana cigarette with her. In a 2008 report, Italian police refer to the man as "F" in their reports, saying that his phone number was found on Knox's cell phone. Records indicate they were in touch both before and after Kercher was slain.

In addition to buying drugs from "F," police wrote his and Knox's relationship was of a "supposedly sexual nature."

"F" was tried in Perugia for cocaine dealing, and one of his associates, a man named as "Luciano" was arrested in July 2006 after stabbing his brother 16 times with a kitchen knife during an argument about drugs and money.

Giuliano Mignini, the magistrate who led the investigation, told The Telegraph on Wednesday that the newest revelations would likely remain separate from Knox's current trial.

Knox remains at home in Seattle, and has not been extradited for the latest murder trial. If she is sentenced it will be in absentia.

"We have three sentences, one of which is definite and we are at the final stages of the process — this will not change anything. We ran down many leads and at the end we were left with three people who left traces in the house," he said.

"The Perugia flying squad did note contacts between Knox and a man linked to dealing. What may have emerged later concerning friends of his would have come out at a different trial."

Legal experts said Knox's connection to the drug ring likely wouldn't be sufficient to extradite her.
