Germany Extradites Ivorian Suspect in Murder of UK Student in Italy

An Ivorian wanted in connection with the killing of a British student in Perugia has been extradited back to Italy, a German prosecutor said Thursday.

Rudy Hermann Guede has denied involvement in the slaying of Meredith Kercher, 21, but has acknowledged being in her room the night she died. He was arrested in Germany on Nov. 20 and held in Koblenz. He was transferred to a holding facility in Frankfurt on Wednesday and then handed over to Italian authorities, said Koblenz prosecutor Karl-Rudolf Winkler. He would not say specifically when the extradition took place.
