Nancy Grace: Amanda Knox Verdict Is a 'Huge Miscarriage of Justice'
The "Dancing With the Stars" contestant says she has no interest in interviewing Knox on HLN: "I don't think she's going to tell the truth anyway, so what's the point?"
Nancy Grace doesn't think Amanda Knox should have been released from prison.
"I was very disturbed, because I think it is a huge miscarriage of justice," Grace told Access Hollywood after Monday's Dancing With the Stars.
"I believe that while Amanda Knox did not wield the knife herself, I think that she was there, with her boyfriend, and that he did the deed, and that she egged him on. That's what I think happened," added Grace.
Knox was released from an Italian jail on Tuesday after spending four years behind bars for allegedly stabbing her roommate Meredith Kercher to death. She touched down in her Seattle hometown Tuesday night.
Said Grace, "I believe her original statement to the police - that she was there in the home when her roommate was murdered was true. ... What they want to do with her regarding sentencing is their business."
Grace added, "I don't wish her ill will."
The HLN host has no interest in the first interview with Knox.
"I'm not trying to get Amanda Knox's first interview because... my show does not pay for interviews in any way," said Grace. "I think whether she gets paid outright or whether it's a licensing fee for a photograph, that's the way a lot of networks get around paying for interviews, I absolutely would not stand to be on a show where we pay for guests or interviews. Second, I don't think she's going to tell the truth anyway, so what's the point?"
Earlier this year, Grace coined the term "tot mom" in her exhaustive coverage of Casey Anthony's trial. Anthony was determined not guilty in the killing of her toddler daughter, Caylee.
