One man convicted of killing British student Meredith Kercher in 2007 was released on Tuesday after serving most of his 16-year prison sentence, his lawyer said.

Attorney Fabrizio Ballarini said the release of Rudy Guede on January 4 was extended by a few weeks by a judge and was released on Tuesday. He will continue to work in the library at the Viterbo-based Criminology Studies Center, Ballarini said in an email.

Guede had already received permission to leave prison at noon to work at the center while serving his sentence for the 2007 murder of Kercher, 21.

The case in the city of Perugia university became world-famous after Kercher's American roommate, Amanda Knox, and Knox's boyfriend at the time were placed under suspicion. Both were initially convicted, but the Italian high court dismissed the charges in 2015 following a series of indirect decisions.

Guede was convicted in a speedy trial. He denied killing Kercher.
