SEATTLE (AP) — The young man whose budding love affair with American exchange student Amanda Knox helped land him in an Italian prison for four years maintains the couple's innocence in a new book, but acknowledges their sometimes bizarre behavior after her roommate's killing gave police reason for suspicion.
Raffaele Sollecito and Knox were imprisoned for the November 2007 death of Meredith Kercher at Knox's apartment in Perugia, north of Rome. An appeals court overturned their conviction and freed them last fall. Sollecito's book, "Honor Bound," is due out Sept. 18. The Associated Press purchased a copy Tuesday.
In it, he describes the early days of their relationship, the horror of Kercher's slaying and the misunderstandings that swept them up in the case.
