AP Newsbreak: Raffaele Sollecito has book deal.

- Associated Press - Thursday, March 15, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) - Amanda Knox's former boyfriend will be the first to tell about the Italian murder trial that made them famous worldwide.

Twenty-seven-year-old Raffaele Sollecito has a deal with Simon & Schuster's Gallery Books for a book scheduled to come out this fall.

The publisher announced Thursday that "Presumed Guilty: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox" would cover his relationship with Knox, their arrests and imprisonment in Italy for murder and their eventual release last fall after the convictions were overturned.

Financial terms were not disclosed. Last month, Knox agreed to terms with HarperCollins for a memoir due next year. The deal was reportedly worth $4 million.
