This is so awful!
Amanda Knox is engaged to musician Colin Sutherland.
The controversial Seattle native — who has been convicted twice for the murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher — knew her fiancé since middle school, but didn't start dating him until last year.
This news is bittersweet for the couple as the 27-year-old journalist is set to hear the fate of her second appeal as early as next month.
In January 2014, an Italian court reinstated her guilty verdict and if the appeal doesn't pass, she will spend 28 and a half years in prison.
Knox has already served four years before being acquitted on her first appeal in 2011.
She is currently working as an arts reporter for the West Seattle Herald.
