Suspect: Argument before Kercher killing

May 6, 2008 at 1:20 PM

PERUGIA, Italy, May 6 (UPI) -- One of the suspects in the slaying of Briton Meredith Kercher told Italian police the victim and her roommate had been squabbling over money, officials said.

Police said Rudy Guede told them that Kercher and Amanda Knox were arguing the night Kercher was stabbed to death about some missing cash that was to have been used to pay the rent.

The Daily Telegraph said the excerpts from Guede's interrogation were published in the Italian newspaper Corriere dell'Umbria and could point to a motive in the high-profile slaying last fall that was still under investigation Tuesday.

Knox and Kercher shared an apartment in Perugia. Knox and Guede have been implicated in the case along with Knox's boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito.
