Amanda Knox back to Italy? ABC news has spoken with one of her attorneys, Carlo Dalla Vedova, who says his client loves Italy and may head back to Perugia to testify on behalf of her parents who are charged with slandering police there.

Knox, a former University of Washington student from West Seattle,  spent four years in an Italian jail after being convicted of killing her British roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia in 2007. Her conviction was overturned last year and she is back in Seattle.

Dalla Vedova told the Italian wire service Ansa that Knox would like to return to Italy as a tourist and if necessary, she’d go back to testify on her parents’ behalf.

Dalla Vedova told ABC News,

“I hope they will be acquitted. They certainly didn’t make any defamatory remarks when they repeated Amanda’s statement to the press.”

Her parents gave an interview to The Sunday Times of London in 2009 that police say slandered them.
