SEATTLE -- American exchange student Amanda Knox has finally broken her silence on the death of her former roommate Meredith Kercher and the trials that followed.

In November of 2007, Kercher was found dead in the house in Perugia, Italy that she shared with Knox. Knox and her boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito were convicted, then cleared of Kerchner's murder after two sensational trials that garnered worldwide attention.

Last month, after reviewing the case, the Italian Supreme Court announced the two would have to stand trial yet again.

In an interview, Knox opens up about her ordeal and her hopes and fears about another retrial.
