Amanda Knox book, interview go on as planned

The Associated Press

Amanda Knox’s memoir and interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer will go on as planned, despite an Italian court overturning her 2011 murder acquittal.

Italy’s highest criminal court ordered a whole new trial for Knox and former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito on Tuesday, overturning their acquittals in the gruesome slaying of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher.

Spokesman David Ford says an ABC News Primetime Special scheduled to air April 30 is moving forward as planned. It will be the first in-depth interview Knox has given since returning to Seattle.

Knox also has a memoir — “Waiting to Be Heard” — due out on the same day as her television interview.

HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis says the book plans have not changed.
