Amanda Knox, Her Murder Conviction Reinstated, Sets Exclusive TV Interview THR
One day after an Italian appeals court reinstated her murder conviction, Amanda Knox was scheduled for a sitdown interview this morning, Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, with “Good Morning America” to speak with host Robin Roberts about the ruling, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
Knox was first found guilty in 2009 of murdering her British roommate in 2007, while both were studying in Italy. Her conviction was overturned in 2011, allowing her to be freed from prison and to return to the U.S. Because Italy’s superior court vacated the overturn, the case was sent back for a third trial, the piece notes.
Knox’s story was the subject of a Lifetime movie starring Hayden Panettiere, “Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy.”
