Amanda Knox has agreed to an interview with ABC News

It will air on April 30

West Seattle's Amanda Knox has agreed to an interview with ABC News that will air on April 30 according to published reports.

The New York Times has a story about the television networks efforts to secure the interview. Diane Sawyer will conduct the interview for the network.

The interview is likely part of a timed effort to coincide with the release of her book, "Waiting to Be Heard - A Memoir," which was delayed from its original publication date.

Knox was arrested and convicted of the murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy in 2009. She was acquited in 2011 after an appeal.
