Amanda Knox wiped away tears as she returned to Italy for the first time since she was freed from prison and acquitted. The 31-year-old was in the audience at a criminal justice forum when she was overcome with emotion. At another point at the conference, Knox was seen sitting between her mother and her fiance, Christopher Robinson. She looked uncomfortable at all the attention and Robinson escorted her out for some air. He stayed by her side during the day and put a protective hand on her back.
