Knox 'won't run away from retrial' in Italy

'If my lawyers say so, I'll go'

Knox 'won't run away from retrial' in Italy

Paris, May 10 - Amanda Knox on Friday said she would attend a retrial if obligated in the case of the 2007 murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher. "I want people to know that I'm not running away from this trial," she told the French edition of Elle magazine. "I've already testified. My presence is not necessary. But if my lawyers feel that it's necessary to go, I'll go". Knox said earlier this week she was afraid to go back to Italy after a court there overturned her acquittal. She was serving a 26-year sentence for the murder of Kercher at their student rental in Perugia 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.
