SEATTLE — Amanda Knox said she wants to speak with the family of Meredith Kercher and tell them she is innocent.

Amanda-KnoxThe Daily Mail reported that Knox recently spoke with Italian newspaper La Repubblica, saying that she liked Kercher and that they were friends.

Knox is currently being retried by an Italian court for the 2007 murder, but she is not attending the hearings. Knox and former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were initially convicted in 2009, then cleared and freed from jail in 2011.

As The Daily Mail reported, Knox told La Repubblica that when she saw Kercher’s family in court during her earlier trial, she wanted to speak with them but the Kerchers’ attorney Francesco Maresca refused the request.

Maresca has told reporters that Knox should stop making public comments.

A verdict in the retrial is expected January 30.

    Foxie Knoxie is a good example of what drugs (legal or not) can do to people.

    Look at WA state’s skyrocketing pot DUI numbers since legalization by the liberals…………

    Watch future crime numbers go up in WA state because of legalized pot.

    The Italians and the Brits both can hardly believe that the black dude slicked the throat of the white looking chick; they can't come to terms that this is a typical black on white crime, so the blame her and continue to view the world as Disne yLand.
