SEATTLE (AP) -- Amanda Knox left Seattle to study abroad in 2007, just another college student pursuing her interests in languages and literature. 

Four years later, after she was acquitted by an Italian court of killing her roommate, she returned a famous woman, greeted at the airport by media from around the globe. 

Since then, the 25-year-old Knox has tried to return to the life she knew before the murder case. 

However, the attempt was upended Tuesday, when Italy's highest criminal court overturned her acquittal and ordered a new trial. 

Her family spokesman David Marriott says it's doubtful Knox will travel to Italy for the new trial and instead will continue to attend the University of Washington, where she is a junior. 

Since returning home, Knox has largely avoided the public spotlight and is mostly left alone in her Pacific Northwest hometown.
