NEW YORK — Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who were recently ordered by an Italian court to be retried in the murder of Knox’s British roommate Meredith Kercher, met “secretly” in New York City on Tuesday, Britain’s Daily Mail reported Thursday.
The newspaper’s website, MailOnline.com, published several photos of Knox and Sollecito hugging and walking the streets of New York.

The British tabloid’s online headline read: “Back in each other’s arms: Amanda Knox’s secret U.S. meeting with ex-lover Raffaele Sollecito hours after judges order retrial.”
In its lead paragraph, it said, “These dramatic pictures reveal how Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito hugged and kissed during a secret reunion in the U.S. this week.”
In March, Italian justices ordered a retrial of the two for Kercher’s murder.
Knox spent four years in prison before an appellate court in 2011 overturned her murder conviction, citing lack of evidence against her in the 2007 death of Kercher in Perugia, Italy. Sollecito’s murder conviction was overturned, too, but another trial was ordered for him as well.
Knox, who returned to the United States in 2011, has been living in Seattle.
