Amanda Knox tells her story to ABC in prime-time show

NEW YORK — Amanda Knox, the college junior who spent four years in an Italian prison after being accused of murdering her British roommate, is telling her story to ABC News.

The network says Knox will sit down with Diane Sawyer for a prime-time special airing April 30. The exclusive interview also will be featured on other ABC News programming.

Knox was an American student from Seattle studying in Italy when, in 2007, she became the center of a murder case that seized the world’s attention. She was convicted in 2009. But after an appeal, she was acquitted and released in October 2011.

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