Speaking exclusively with ABC’s Good Morning America for the first time since her 2009 conviction for the murder of roommate Meredith Kercher, Amanda Knox says Thursday’s decision ‘hit her like a freight train’. The 26-year old watched her re-trial from her home in Seattle, WA, saying while she was confident the court would uphold her 2011 acquittal, she was frightened to return to Italy. Knox maintains her innocence and vows to fight her conviction again at Italy’s highest court. The United States has no extradition treaty with Italy, due to that country’s lack of a double jeopardy rule, which prevents someone from being twice convicted for the same crime.
