The American Amanda Knox, accused in Italy of murdering a British student in 2009, got engaged. On several social networks Knox posted a video showing the marriage proposal of an old friend Christopher Robinson.
"Amanda Marie Knox," Robinson asks in a recording of more than six minutes, "do you want to marry me?" Responding Knox obviously touched Yes, then the two kisses.
Now 31, he was widely known when an Italian court sentenced her in December 2009 to the murder of roommate Meredith Kercher. Kercher was raped in November 2007 and found half naked with a cut throat. Knox spent four years in an Italian prison before an appeals court acquitted her. The American lives in Seattle with Robinson, a writer, and works as a journalist.
