Amanda Knox was convicted in 2009 for the murder of her housemate, Meredith Kercher, in Perugia, Umbria, Italy, where they were both students. She served four years of a 26-year sentence before the murder conviction was overturned in October 2011. Now she is working to move on with her life.
At home in Seattle, Knox is wears a small gold necklace in the shape of a dove. The prison's Catholic chaplain gave it to her the night she was waiting for the appeals-court decision that reversed her conviction. "He gave it to me to remind me I am free, no matter where I am."
