Amanda Knox, the young woman accused of murdering the British student Meredith Kercher, sighed and sang during breaks in her court appearance, it has been reported.
Miss Knox, 21, or Foxy Knoxy, as she styled herself on her website, is known to sing in jail to pass the time.
During breaks in a pre-trial hearing, she sang hits by the band Feist, the Sun newspaper claimed.
Her co-accused Rudy Guede, 21, was also at the hearing but Miss Knox's former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, 24, did not attend.
A source at the court in Perugia, where Miss Kercher was found murdered, told the Sun: "During the hearing she never said a word.
"But outside when there were breaks for water and coffee she was smiling and singing. She was also huffing and puffing a lot - I think it was because it was a long day. It was a song by Feist and she said she sings to relax and deal with her stress.
"She also said that she has been keeping fit in prison exercising and is studying Russian. Her cellmates have also had a go at her for studying all the time but she is keen to put the time to use."
Earlier this year it was revealed that Miss Knox kept singing the Beatles hit Let It Be in jail.
Miss Kercher's parents John and Arline and her sister Stephanie, from Couldson, Surrey, were in court for the hearing.
Their lawyer Francesco Maresca said: "It was very hard for them to be in court but they are pleased they came.
"They were happy with how things went and they were very composed even though it was a painful time for them.
"They were seeing for the first time two of the people accused of their daughter's murder but they never exchanged glances.
Miss Kercher, a Leeds University student, was found dead in her bedroom, semi naked and with her throat cut in November last year.
Miss Knox, Mr Sollecito and Mr Guede all deny killing her and stealing cash from her bedroom.
The hearing was adjourned until later this month
