Lifetime Movie Makes Knox 'Ill'

Amanda Knox, who was convicted of murder in 2007 and sentenced to 26 years in jail, was hyperventilating from her prison cell last weekend after seeing a newscast of Lifetime's TV movie, Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy. The newscast featured clips from a trailer for the film, including sex scenes and a reenactment of the murder of Knox's roommate Meredith Kercher. In her weekly phone call home, Knox spoke with her stepfather Chris Mellas and said, "I was physically ill when I saw the images. I thought I was going to throw up," Mellas reported to ABC News. Knox's lawyers have contacted Lifetime and will take legal action if the network does not respond to them by February 10.
