Washington, May 7 - Amanda Knox said she is afraid
to go back to Italy after a court there overturned her acquittal
for murder.
"I'm afraid to go back there," she said in an interview
with CNN late Monday.
Knox was serving a 26-year sentence for the 2007 murder of
Meredith Kercher when an appeals court overturned a lower
court's ruling in 2011, setting her free to return to the US.
But in March, Italy's supreme Court of Cassation overturned
the acquittal, setting the stage for a retrial at the appeals
level.
Her Italian boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, is
also accused of the murder.
Knox told her account of the ordeal in a new book entitled
waiting to be heard.
"In Italy," she added, "people think it's arrogant of me to
sit here in the United States and have a book come out and
defend myself. And first of all, I find that incredibly unfair,
because I have the right to defend myself. And no one can ask me
to just shut up because it's convenient. But at the same time, I
want to prove to them that I care about what's going on".
