Student Held In Death Of Roommate

Full story and MySpace profile:

An American student detained in this central Italian city in connection with the slaying of her British roommate will face a judge Thursday in a hearing to determine whether she and two other suspects will stay in jail.

Amanda Marie Knox, a 20-year-old University of Washington student from Seattle, was detained Tuesday along with her 24-year-old Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and a Congolese resident of Perugia, Lumumba "Patrick" Diya, 38. They were held in connection with the sexual assault and death of British student Meredith Kercher.

Perugia police did not release the suspects' names, but a police spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that the names that had appeared in the Italian media were correct.

Kercher, 21, was found dead Friday, half-naked, in the apartment she shared with Knox after attending a Halloween party, authorities said.
