Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend Rafaelle Sollecito says the Seattle native was demure and shy, completely in contrast to the sexually-charged temptress Italian prosecutors painted her as in the murder trial in the 2007 death of her college roommate Meredith Kercher.

"She wasn’t remotely deviant -- Amanda was shy, inexpert and a little ham-handed: like me in fact," Sollecito told Italy's Oggi magazine. "I don’t want to go into details, it wouldn’t be right.

"I will tell you, for example, that many times more than anything else she just wanted me to comb her hair."

As we previously reported, Knox was convicted in 2009 in the British student Kercher's murder in Perugia, Italy, getting a 26-year sentence until it was overturned two years later.

Sollecito and Knox are slated to be retried beginning Sept. 30 in Florence, and while Knox says she will not go back to Italy, Sollecito said he will be present at the appeal trial.

Sollecito, 29, told the magazine that if he's let off the hook, he plans on moving to the U.S., to ply his trade in the technology field.

"As a computer programmer Silicon Valley is like Mecca for me," he said. "But I’m on standby. I see that everything else moves, but I feel like I’m frozen. By annulling our absolution, the Supreme Court has put me back in a prison."
