(Newser) – The niece of Britain's defense minister is on trial for slashing a French lover's throat in the midst of a kinky sex game. Jessica Davies, 30, claims she was in a "black out," high on alcohol and anti-depressants during the tragedy, and remembers nothing of the death in a Paris Left Bank apartment. Investigators believed Davies may have been "inspired" by Meredith Kercher's slashing death. Psychiatrists have reported hat Davies was "disturbed" and in an "altered state" when the death occurred, reports the Telegraph.
