French police have rejected speculation that the niece of a British MP was influenced by the murder of Meredith Kercher in Italy when she stabbed a man in her flat west of Paris last Saturday night.

Jessica Davies, 28, has admitted stabbing a man she met at an Irish bar in St Germain-en-Laye. She was so drunk when police arrived she could not be questioned until Sunday evening.

Police rejected as "unsupported by any facts we know" suggestions in the British press that the killing was connected to a drunken "sex game" or influenced by the murder of Ms Kercher, allegedly during an orgy.
