Hollywood took its obsession with the Kercher case to a new level with “The Face of an Angel”, a movie by Michael Winterbottom starring Kate Beckinsale and the top model Cara Delevigne.
Meredith Kercher, a UK exchange student, was assassinated in Perugia in 2007. Rudy Guede, an Ivory Coast citizen, was found guilty of her murder and sentenced to a jail term.
According to the District Attorney’s Office Mr Guede was an accomplice of the Italian student Raffaele Sollecito and his US girlfriend Amanda Knox; the latter shared with the victim the flat where the murder took place.
After a never-ending string of trials, Mr Sollecito and Mrs Knox were acquitted by the Italian Supreme Court, which could lead to Mr Guede obtaining a new trial.
