Amanda Knox, convicted in Italy of the murder of her British flat mate Meredith Kercher, is engaged to be married.
The Seattle Times reports that Knox will marry Colin Sutherland, a musician who recently moved to Seattle from New York. A person close to the Knox family confirmed Knox's engagement for The Associated Press.
Both Knox and Sutherland are 27. No wedding date had been set.
Knox's murder conviction for the 2007 stabbing of Meredith Kercher was reinstated by an Italian court after an appeal court freed her, but the former college exchange student maintains her innocence and vows she won't willingly go back to Italy.
The appellate court had cleared her in 2011 after she had spent four years in prison. Italy's highest court then overturned her acquittal.
Knox's lawyers have formally asked Italy's court of last resort to review the case.
