ABC lands interview with Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox, who spent four years in an Italian prison after being accused in the slaying of her British roommate in 2007, will tell her story to ABC news.

The network says the exclusive interview will air on a prime-time special on April 30. It also will be featured on other ABC News programming.

Knox, of West Seattle and formerly of the University of Washington, was arrested along with Raffaele Sollecito, in Perugia, Italy, shortly after Knox’s roommate, Meredith Kercher, was found stabbed to death in the home Kercher and Knox shared with two other women.

Knox and Sollecito, who were both students in Perugia and had been dating for a short time, were convicted of murder in 2009, but were acquitted in 2011 after they appealed.

The interview is timed to the publication of Knox’s book, “Waiting to Be Heard.”

After her emotional return to Seattle in late 2011, Knox, who has kept out of the public eye, has been writing about her experience in Perugia.

Sollecito already has written and released a book about the ordeal.
