Murdered student is named by police.

A 21-year-old British student found murdered in Italy has been named as Meredith Kercher.

The student was reportedly found with a deep cut to her throat in her bedroom in the town of Perugia.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "The circumstances of the death are under investigation by the Italian police."

Her partially clothed body was discovered under a duvet early yesterday afternoon at a house in the Viale Sant'Antonio, not far from the town centre.

Police found the body when they went to return a mobile phone discovered in a nearby garden.

Miss Kercher had been in Italy since August as part of a university exchange.

Police said the door seemed to have been locked from the inside and officers were concentrating on a bloodstained window.
