Family and friends eager to welcome Amanda Knox home after she is cleared of charges

Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were freed on Monday after four years in prison when an Italian appeals court cleared them of the 2007 murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

Amanda is on her way home to Seattle, Washington today. She says the first thing she wants to do is lay down in a grassy field.

Tom Wright, a friend of the Knox family and founder of "Friends of Amanda Knox" talks about what it was like to hear the verdict yesterday.
