Amanda knox barbed wire

Amanda knox barbed wire, Amanda Knox waits to go back on trial after the Supreme Court of Italy annulled her acquittal last month.

After two years, Knox has finally opened up about her horrible ordeal after being accused, then charged, then acquitted of murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher, while the two college students were studying aboard in Perugia, Italy.

And now after serving 4 year in prison before an Italian appeals court overturned her murder conviction in 2011, the Italian Supreme Court has not uphold the appeals court ruling and a new trial will begin for Knox.

Her six year ordeal following Kercher's murder is still not over, in an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer, Knox says that hearing she would go back on trial was "incredibly painful."

This never-ending legal battle will also continue for Knox's ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who was convicted for murdering Kercher along with her. The Italian court is also refusing to vacate her conviction for slander when she wrongly identified her employer, Patrick Lumumba, as the person who murdered her roommate. Knox claims that this statement was made under police duress. However, it is odd the Italian court refuses to vacate her conviction of slander because has already served the three-year prison sentence.

Knox compares the latest battle for her freedom to crawling through barbed wire, "I felt like after crawling through a field of barbed wire and finally reaching what I thought was the end, it just turned out that it was the horizon," Knox said. "And I had another field of barbed wire that I had ahead of me to crawl through."

Knox's lawyer, Carlo Dalla Vedova, revealed to ABC News that a new trial will begin in the next year. The trial is at the appellate level and will take place in Florence, Italy.

While Knox is pained that this painful period in her life is not yet over, she is still willing to fight for her freedom. In her interview Knox stated, "I was so convinced that it was finally going to be over, but it just means that it's all the more important that I say what happened and keep fighting for what's right."

Knox's memoir "Waiting to Be Heard" was released yesterday which reveals intimate details about her time in prison, her feelings during this legal ordeal, and even a personal letter Knox had written to Kercher's family.
