Kercher retrial: Sollecito denies 'atrocious act'

Raffaele Sollecito, the Italian man convicted and later cleared of killing a British student in Perugia in 2007, has told a court in Florence that he is not a "ruthless killer".

Mr Sollecito and his then-girlfriend, Amanda Knox, were convicted in 2009 of murder but acquitted on appeal in 2011.

Speaking at the retrial he said there was "no real sense" in the idea that he would commit "such an atrocious act."
