KERCHER TRIAL HEARS LAST EVIDENCE !

The last witnesses have given evidence in the trial of two people accused of killing the British student, Meredith Kercher in Italy.
American Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend, Italian Raffaele Sollecito, deny stabbing Ms Kercher to death in Perugia in 2007.
Prosecutors say Miss Kercher, an exchange student from London, was killed during what began as a sex game.
The trial resumes on 9 October with a verdict expected in several weeks.
On Friday the court heard a neurologist called by Ms Knox's defence team explained why he thought she gave police differing stories about her whereabouts on the night of the killing.
Carlo Caltagirone said Ms Knox was under stress after long police questioning, which might have confused her.
Ms Knox, 22, now maintains she spent the night at Mr Sollecito's house elsewhere in Perugia.
One man, Rudy Guede from the Ivory Coast, has been jailed for 30 years for killing Miss Kercher, a Leeds University student.
He has denied wrongdoing and is appealing against the conviction.
