The Lifetime network plans to replay its biopic about Amanda Knox Tuesday night, but with an update indicating Knox was acquitted Monday of murder.

“Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy” stars Hayden Panettiere as Knox. It originally aired in February despite protests by the Knox family, who feared it could influence the court to uphold Knox’s murder conviction.

A Lifetime spokesperson tells The Los Angeles Times that from now on, when the movie airs, it will include several sentences before and after updating the case.

The movie airs at 9 p.m. Tuesday, followed by a one-hour special taking a closer look at the case.
