Waiting to Be Heard: Amanda Knox


It is a case that has captivated Italy, the U.S. and the world over. In her only Canadian broadcast interview, Amanda Knox tells us about the price she paid after she was charged with murdering her room-mate, her eventual acquittal and the recent call by Italy's top court for her to stand trial again.

Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir by Amanda Knox

In 2009, an Italian court convicted Amanda Knox and her then-boyfriend with the murder of her room mate, Meredith Kercher. It was a homicide and a suspect made for the tabloids.

But the case appeared to grow weaker against the young American as it proceeded through the Italian justice system. Evidence pointed in different directions. Prosecutors couldn't decide on a motive.

After four years of legal upheaval, her conviction was overturned. It may not be over yet -- but in the end, the Italian legal system has fared far worse than Ms. Knox in the court of world opinion.

Amanda Knox tells her side of the story in her new memoir Waiting to be Heard. In her only Canadian broadcast interview, Amanda Knox joined us from New York.
