Amanda Knox, the United States exchange student jailed for four years then acquitted for the 2007 murder of her roommate in the Italian town of Perugia, returned to Italy on Thursday to address a conference on wrongful convictions.
Flying from her home in Seattle, Knox touched down in Milan early Thursday morning and headed straight for the northern city of Modena where she is due appear as a guest speaker at a panel discussion about wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justice organised by legal charity The Italy Innocence Project, CNN reports. Knox's sentence was increased to 28 years in prison when the conviction was upheld in 2014, before both she and Sollecito were acquitted by Italy's top court the following year.
Her throat had been slashed.Another man, Rudy Guede, was arrested and convicted separately of Kercher's murder; he is now serving a 16-year prison sentence.
Netflix made a documentary about the case in 2016, titled "Amanda Knox", that featured interviews with Knox and aimed to portray a more personal view of the case.

Italian coverage of the trial, following Knox's acquittal.
In an essay published online on Wednesday, Knox said she was "polishing up the speech I'm about to give to a potentially hostile audience in Italy".
"I'm about to return to Italy for the first time since I was released from prison and fled the country in a high-speed chase, paparazzi literally ramming the back of my stepdad's rental auto", she wrote.
". The mistakes of the Italian judicial system and the ravenous appetite of a media that does not distinguish between a person's life and clickworthy content pushed me into the public sphere", she added. "It's on us to stop making and stop consuming such irresponsible media". "Wish us, 'Buon viaggio!'"
In her piece for Medium, Knox grappled with her status as an unwilling public figure and voiced her desire to do better as a journalist.
Knox will take part in a three-day conference on criminal law in Italy, according to the conference's organizers.
