UK Banker Pleads Not Guilty to HK Murders

A British banker accused of murdering two Indonesian women who were found dead in his luxury Hong Kong apartment two years ago has pleaded “not guilty” in court. The grisly killings shocked the former British colony. Rurik Jutting, 31, entered a plea of not guilty to the double murder on grounds of “diminished responsibility” at the start of his trial in Hong Kong’s High Court on Monday, Deutsche Welle reported. Police found the bodies of Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasih in Jutting’s high-rise apartment in November 2014. According to officials, one of the bodies was stuffed in a suitcase on a balcony and the other lying inside with knife wounds. The Cambridge University graduate, who previously worked at Bank of America Corp in Hong Kong, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter, and to a third charge of preventing lawful burial of a body. Jutting was found fit to plea after undergoing psychiatric assessment at the end of 2014 soon after he was charged for the double murder. If convicted, he faces life in prison.
