Amanda Knox, the college student who was convicted of murder in Italy and then released after winning an appeal, is breaking her silence in her first interview.

Knox is finally telling her side of the story to ABC News. The network said Monday that the exclusive interview will air as a prime-time special on April 30. It will also be featured across various ABC programs, including “World News with Diane Sawyer,” “Good Morning America,” and “Nightline.”

In the sensational murder case that captured the world’s attention, Knox, along with then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, was convicted in 2009 of murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher. After an appeal, and spending four years in an Italian prison, Knox’s murder conviction was overturned in a dramatic verdict and she was freed in October 2011.

The interview coincides with the release of Amanda Knox’s new book about her ordeal, “Waiting to Be Heard.”
