Kercher sister to award Meredith scholarship Tuesday


Perugia, May 31 - The sister of Meredith Kercher
will be in Perugia Tuesday to hand out the first scholarship
from a fund set up in her name by the Umbrian city and
university she was studying at when she was murdered in 2007.
"The city won't forget Meredith," Mayor Wladimiro Boccali
said Friday.
Stephanie Kercher will award the scholarship to British
student Olivia Taylor at a ceremony with the mayor and the head
of Perugia's famous University for Foreigners.
"The scholarship finally lets us remember Meredith outside
the lawcourts," Kercher family lawyer told ANSA.
Kercher, 21, was found semi-naked and with her throat
cut in the house she shared in Perugia with a Seattle-born
student, Amanda Knox, and two Italian women.
Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were
convicted of the murder in December 2009 and acquitted at an
appeals trial in December 2011.
In March 2013 the Italian supreme court overturned the
acquittal and sent the case back to the appeals stage.
