Amanda Knox Reacts To Guilty Verdict In Murder Trial, “Will Never Willingly Go Back” To Italy
Amanda Knox can’t seem to put her Italian nightmare behind her. On Friday, the 28-year-old Seattle resident spoke out about being found guilty of the 2007 murder of her former roommate Meredith Kercher telling Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that the latest conviction “hit me like a train.” Knox, who was sentenced on Thursday by Italy’s supreme court, known as the Court of Cassation, to spend 28 years and six months in jail said, “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.” Knox, along with ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, was charged with Kercher’s murder in 2009. Both parties appealed from behind bars, and in 2011, the original conviction was overturned. Knox and Sollecito were found innocent and released from prison. It wasn’t until March 2013 that the Italian courts sent the case back for a third trial in Florence. Both Knox and Sollecito (who was reportedly stopped by authorities near the Italian border on Friday) are appealing this latest conviction.
