Raffaele Sollecito is in the fight of his life.
In an interview on Today, Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend says the pair's retrial that kicked off Monday in Florence, Italy has left him in a horrible state of legal hell from which he's afraid there's no return.
"It seems to be a pretty never-ending saga of a nightmare," Sollecito, 29, told co-anchor Savannah Guthrie. "My life is still on hold and I cannot move on. I cannot make plans for my future. I don't see him any real future for me instead of standing in the trial, kind of forever."
The Italian native and the Seattle exchange student both were accused in the 2007 gruesome stabbing death of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, in Perugia, Italy. After being found guilty, Sollecito and Knox spent four years in an Italian prison before a lower court overturned their murder conviction and acquitted them on appeal in October 2011.
