Amanda Knox Won’t Return to Italy for New Trial, Family Says

American Amanda Knox will not return to Italy for a retrial in the 2007 death of her British roommate, a spokesman for the Knox family said.

David Marriott said Knox had never agreed to attend, and there’s “no requirement she be there.” Still, there remains the possibility that Italy could request her extradition from the United States.

In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo in May, Knox said she “didn’t know” whether she’d return.

“It’s a really complicated question,” Knox said. “I mean, I’m afraid to go back there. I don’t want to go back into prison.”
