BREAKING NEWS Meredith Kercher killer Rudy Guede is charged with beating up his ex-girlfriend six months after leaving prison: Raffaele Sollecito – acquitted over the Brit’s death – says ‘it seems he has not changed’
Meredith Kercher’s killer had been charged with beating up his ex-girlfriend – six months after he was released from an Italian prison for murdering the British university student.
Ivory Coast drifter Rudy Guede, 36, was released from prison in June after serving 13 years for the grisly murder and sexual assault of 21-year-old Kercher in Perugia, Italy, in November 2007.
Kercher was found semi-naked and with her throat cut in the bedroom of her house in the hilltop town – just weeks after arriving for a year abroad with her Leeds University course.
Guede was originally sentenced to 30 years for her murder, but this was later reduced to 18 years and with good behaviour he was freed on parole in 2021 and got a job in a local library in Viterbo where he now lives.
In June he was discharged from his sentence, but it has now emerged he has been charged with assaulting his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend.
Pending his trial, a local prosecutor has authorised him to wear an electronic tag and not go within 500 metres of his partner. Prosecutors had requested the measure of house arrest.
Raffaele Sollecito, who was acquitted over the Brit’s murder along with Amanda Knox, said ‘it seems Guede has not changed’ after he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend.

‘I don’t follow Guede’s life, but certainly in light of what happened today it seems to me that he hasn’t changed,’ Sollecito told La Stampa.
‘What he was before entering prison, what we read in the documents, is sadly reconfirmed and equally sad. We see that he has not repented,’ Sollecito added.
