Amanda Knox Raffaele Sollecito

November 7, 2011 by staff 

Amanda Knox Raffaele Sollecito, In his first public appearance since his murder conviction was overturned, Raffaele Sollecito, the onetime boyfriend of Amanda Knox, spoke out about the nearly four years he spent behind bars and the current state of his relationship with Knox.

On the Italian TV program Quarto Grado, the 27-year-old Sollecito acknowledged that Knox had invited him to Seattle but said he was not sure if or when he would go. He confirmed that their relationship is over, according to the Daily Mail: “I still have a great affection toward her, but nothing else.”

Sollecito’s TV interview contradicts earlier reports in the British and Italian media that the former couple were in close contact. Francesco Sollecito, Raffaele’s father, has also denied that his son frequently speaks to Knox.

Knox and Sollecito were sentenced to 26 years and 25 years in Italian prison, respectively, for the murder of Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia in 2007. A review of the DNA evidence in their appeals trial this summer revealed numerous inconsistencies, and after the genetic evidence was largely discredited, both defendants were declared not guilty and freed in October.
