The murderer of Meredith Kercher is out of jail: he sees cycling to work on day release, despite the fact that he was serving sixteen years in jail for killing the British student
- Rudy Guede jailed in 2008 for killing Mrs. Kercher, 21, after being found dead with 47 stab wounds
- Guede now works at the criminology center in Viterbo, Italy, and drives to work
- The source at Mrs. Kercher's family said it was & # 39; shocking & # 39; was to see Guede outside
The murderer of the British student Meredith Kercher, who has been in an Italian prison for sixteen years for her murder, was released from jail for a day and smiled smilingly as he cycled to his job as a librarian.
Rudy Guede was imprisoned for 16 years in 2008 for killing Miss Kercher, 21, who was found dead in her apartment in Italy in 2007 after being stabbed 47 times.
Despite the fact that Guede still has five years of his sentence, he now works in a criminology center in the Italian city of Viterbo and was seen on his bicycle to work.

A source near the Kercher family told the sun on sunday: & # 39; We accept that he must be released at some point, but it is disturbing to see him outside now. & # 39;
When Gucy was approached, Guede-born Guede said: & I can't talk to you. I could get in trouble.
Guede had always denied that he had killed Kercher. He was initially sentenced to 30 years in prison for his conviction, which was reduced to 16 years after an appeal.

He fled to Germany after the murder, but was arrested and extradited after his bloody fingerprint was found on a pillow near Meredith's house.
He admitted that he was in the flat on the night of the murder, but claimed that he was in the bathroom when the crime was committed and he heard screams.
Guede tried to place the blame on Meredith's American roommate Amanda Knox and her Italian friend Raffaele Sollecito.
And Guede's last observation comes two weeks after Mrs Knox, now 31, returned to Italy for the first time since her conviction for the murder of Mrs Kercher was destroyed.
She and former enthusiast, Mr. Sollecito, had both served four years for the crime before their release in 2011.
The body of the British exchange student was found by the police in the Perugia apartment that she shared with Knox on November 2, 2007.

Officers discovered that Kercher's throat had succumbed and that she had been sexually abused.
Knox and her then friend Raffaele Sollecito were arrested and later convicted of murder and assault in 2009.
The couple maintained their innocence, insisting that they had spent the evening together in Sollecito's home to watch a movie, smoke marijuana, and be intimate.
In 2011, the Perugia Court of Appeal acquitted the couple of the more serious charges, although they defended a small conviction for Knox.
But in a flip-flop series of court decisions during her absence, her murder claim was restored and finally collapsed again in 2015.
In the final verdict, judges cited shortcomings in the investigation and said there was a lack of evidence to prove their injustice beyond reasonable doubt, including a lack of & # 39; biological traces & # 39; who linked them to crime.
