Amanda Knox absent at retrial
Florence, Italy -- The retrial of Amanda Knox starts Monday in Italy without her present.
The American college student was convicted in 2009 of murdering her roommate while studying abroad. That conviction was overturned in 2011 for a lack of evidence.
Last year, however, Italys supreme court decided to retry the case, saying that some evidence was not considered.
Knox said she is scared to return to Italy, and that she has frequent flashbacks to her four years behind bars.
Since her acquittal, Knox has been living in her hometown of Seattle.
