Knox’s Ex-Boyfriend Breaks Silence

So much for keeping a low profile: Amanda Knox’s Italian former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, has broken his silence for the first time since they were both acquitted of murdering Meredith Kercher. In an interview with the Italian weekly Oggi, Sollecito claims he and Knox speak on the phone every day. “We need each other,” he tells the weekly. “We spent four years in a circle of hell, we suffered unspeakably and it ruined our lives.” The couple spent four years in prison after being charged with sexually assaulting and murdering Kercher, Knox’s then-roommate who was found half-naked with her throat slit in her bedroom in November 2007. Sollecito also said he gladly accepted Knox’s invitation to visit her in Seattle. “I could go at any moment—I really want to see her again, to speak with her and look into her eyes.”
