Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox has been the subject of extensive media coverage after releasing a tell-all memoir, Waiting to be Heard, about her trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher, her four years spent in an Italian prison and her acquittal. The 25-year-old Seattle student has repeatedly insisted she is innocent, telling ABC News's Diane Sawyer that media depictions of her as a "she-devil with an angel's face" are false. But the book comes just over six weeks after the 25-year-old, dubbed ‘Foxy Knoxy’ by the press, was told Italy’s Court of Cassation had annulled her 2011 acquittal of murder. Her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito’s acquittal was also overturned. While Knox does not need to return to Italy for the trial it is possible she could be extradited back to the country from America if found guilty. Knox’s grandmother Elisabeth Huff, has said the Italian authorities were “persecuting” her granddaughter. ”She has already been tried twice. Why reopen it,” she said.
