SEATTLE — Amanda Knox, the Seattle woman who was convicted of murder, freed from prison on reversal and then re-convicted by Italian courts of killing her roommate in 2007, is now engaged, the Seattle Times reported Wednesday.

Knox, 27, is engaged to Colin Sutherland, also 27, a musician from New York who recently moved back to Seattle and whom she’s known since middle school, according to Times editorial columnist Jonathan Martin.

No date for the wedding has been set, according to Martin.

On Nov. 2, 2007, Knox’s roommate, Meredith Kercher, of Britain, was found slain at their flat in Perugia, Italy. Knox was there for her junior year of college abroad.

Knox and her Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were later convicted of murder in the case. Their convictions were reversed on appeal in 2011 and they were freed from prison. But the prosecutors appealed that decision and they were both re-convicted last year.

The appeal of that re-conviction will be heard in Italy on March 25. But Knox has stated that she has no plans to return to Italy, regardless of the outcome.

According to Martin, Knox’s husband-to-be wrote to her while she was in prison in Italy.

    This inquisitory trial has always rested on shifting opinions formed from misconstrued facts. The opinions are proved from the preconceived guilt such as why Amanda supposedly lied when she expressed her belief that Meredith liked to lock the door to her room. judge Massei assumed that she wanted to delay discovery of the body, but he never gave a reason why she would want to do that. Or why when Amanda and Raffaele were crowded out of the way when the door was broken open, and the judge assumed that they did not crowd into the narrow space because they supposedly already knew what would be seen. That’s circular reasoning.

    Bottom line is, she changed her story 3 different times. Face it – if she was innocent, she would not have done that. She would have told the truth and stuck to it. Yes, she is guilty and yes she should be extradited

    They were not “reconvicted”; the original conviction was reinstated by the italian supreme court which overturned the appellate level acquittal. Knox knew of the possibility the acquittal would be dismissed when she returned to the united states.
