The body of Meredith Kercher was discovered by Italian police at the cottage that she shared with other students in Perugia on November 2, 2007.

On November 20, Rudy Hermann Guede was arrested in Germany. A warrant had been issued for his arrest on the basis of DNA and fingerprint evidence found on the victim's body. Guede had fled to Germany following the murder. On December 6, he was extradited back to Italy. The three suspects were held in custody in Perugia and were charged with murder, sexual assault and theft.
