Kercher’s body was found in the apartment she shared with roommate Amanda Knox in Perugia, Italy, in November 2007. The 21-year-old’s throat had been slashed.
Guede, originally from Ivory Coast, requested a separate fast-track trial, fearing that Knox and Sollecito had formed a pact against him.
He was convicted of murder in October 2008, and sentenced to 30 years in prison. His sentence was reduced to 16 years on appeal in December 2009.
