'Matter of fact' that Kercher 'was attacked' by Knox

A new document by an appeal court has stated evidence of a fallout between murdered British student Meredith Kercher and Amanda Knox.

The document said: "It is a matter of fact that at a certain point in the evening events accelerated; the English girl was attacked by Amanda Marie Knox, by Raffaele Sollecito, who was backing up his girlfriend, and by Rudy Hermann Guede, and constrained within her own room."

Rudy Guede was convicted in a separate trial of sexually assaulting and stabbing Kercher.

His 16-year sentence, reduced on appeal from 30 years, was upheld in 2010 by Italy's highest court, which said he had not acted alone.
