Amanda Knox's Italian ex-boyfriend has spoken out for the first time since their murder convictions were overturned, saying "we need each other," and that they talk every day and he cannot wait to see her again, reports the Daily Mail. "We spent four years in a circle of hell, we suffered unspeakably, and it ruined our lives," said Raffaele Sollecito. "I really want to see her again, to speak with her and look into her eyes."

Sollecito said that the two write and talk, "to try and understand what happened to us," and that he has been invited to spend Christmas at the Knox home in Seattle. "I will certainly go and see Amanda." They each "look forward to a future that appeared broken forever but instead we can still build on," he says. Italian speakers can check out the original interview in Oggi magazine. (Read more Amanda Knox stories.)
