Amanda Knox and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito’s lawyers are attempting to halt Lifetime’s airing of Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy, a TV movie chronicling Knox and Sollecito’s supposed involvement in the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher. According to the Associated Press, attorneys for both Knox and Sollecito — who are serving time in Italy after being found guilty of Kercher’s murder — are threatening to go to U.S. court if Lifetime airs the Feb. 21 film and keeps its trailer on the network’s website. Amanda Knox stars Hayden Panettiere as the title character; both Knox and Sollecito still maintain their innocence. Lifetime is not commenting on the matter.
