Amanda Knox says she will not go back to Italy to stand trial again for murder, CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Knox was convicted, then acquitted in the murder of her British roommate but the case is being examined once more, specifically the discredited theory that Knox killed the girl during a sex game gone wrong.
The possibility of another trial has haunted Knox.
In May, she relayed her deep worries about what might happen in Italy, where she spent four years behind bars.
Knox said then, "I'm afraid to go back there. I don't want to go back into prison. I don't want them to, all of a sudden, do a court order when I'm there– just respecting the court and going there and the prosecution, that I'm asked to be put in preventative detention again."
Italian law doesn't recognize double jeopardy as in the U.S, and the supreme court there announced it would retry the case, saying the jury hadn't considered all the evidence and must resolve "deficiencies" and "contradictions" of witness accounts.
