New Break-In At House Of Briton Slain In Italy

PERUGIA, Italy — Italian court officials say intruders have for the second time in a month broken into a house where a British student was killed.

Lawyers and a judge discussed the break-in Friday during the trial of two people for the death of Meredith Kercher.

The break-in was noticed during a routine inspection Thursday, when police saw a window had been broken.

In February, intruders ransacked the house in Perugia and left four kitchen knives and some candles in various rooms. Local news reports said that this time the intruders did not leave anything behind but moved things around.

Kercher was found dead in 2007 in the house.

Her roommate, Amanda Knox, and Knox’s former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, are on trial for the murder.
