Lawyer: Amanda Knox is 'ready to fight'

Amanda Knox now faces a retrial for murder in Italy.

She is the former American college student who was cleared of killing her roommate, but early this morning, an Italian court overturned that acquittal.

EARLIER: No 'double jeopardy' protection in Italy?

Knox's lawyer says she was shocked and saddened by the judges' decision.

Knox and her ex-boyfriend were convicted in the death of Meredith Kercher and spent four years in jail, but were freed in 2011.

The big question now: Could the U.S. refuse to extradite Knox?

Morning Express with Robin Meade will go live to Perugia, Italy, for the latest this morning on HLN.
