HK jury convicts British banker of murdering Indonesians
HONG KONG - A Hong Kong jury has convicted a British banker in the 2014 killings of two Indonesian women in a gruesome case that shocked the Chinese financial hub.
The nine-person jury returned their unanimous verdicts in the High Court on Tuesday.
They found Rurik Jutting guilty of murder in the death of 23-year-old Sumarti Ningsih. Prosecutors said Jutting was using cocaine while he tortured her for three days and then slit her throat.
Jurors were shown graphic smartphone video clips of the torture filmed by Jutting, who stuffed her body inside a suitcase that he left on the balcony of his upscale apartment near Hong Kong's famous Wan Chai red-light district.
