Will Amanda Knox be extradited to Italy to face a murder trial? Jill Doherty explains


(CNN) - Experts disagreed Tuesday over whether Amanda Knox is likely to be extradited to Italy, where the country's highest criminal court overturned her acquittal and that of her former boyfriend in the 2007 killing of her roommate, Meredith Kercher.

Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were convicted in 2009 of murder in Kercher's death, but a jury overturned the conviction in 2011. She then returned to her home city of Seattle, Washington, where she is studying creative writing at the University of Washington, according to her family's spokesman, David Marriott.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Jill Dougherty looks at the conflicting arguments and whether Knox will potentially have to face an Italian judge in her case.
