PERUGIA, ITALY (AP) - The trial of two people for the murder of a British student has resumed in Perugia with a witness describing a meeting with the accused the day of the murder.

Five people were scheduled to take the stand Saturday at the trial of U.S. student Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. They are accused of killing Meredith Kercher, Knox’s roommate, on Nov. 1, 2007. The woman’s body was found Nov. 2.

Witness Jovana Popovic of Serbia said Sollecito had agreed to drive her to a bus station in Perugia the night of the murder. Popovic said she changed her plan and went to Sollecito’s house at 8:40 p.m. to tell him she no longer needed to go.

Prosecutors believed Kercher died between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Nov. 1.
