Hk Court Rejects British Ex-bankers Last Bid To Appeal Murder Conviction

HONG KONG – Hong Kong’s highest court on Thursday rejected the final attempt by a British former banker to force a new trial over his jailing in 2016 for the cocaine-fueled murder of two Indonesian women he tortured and raped.

Cambridge-educated Rurik Jutting, 32, is serving a life sentence for the murder of Indonesians Sumarti Ningsih, 23, and Seneng Mujiasih, 26, in his luxury apartment in 2014.

The former Bank of America employee denied murdering the pair on the grounds of diminished responsibility due to drug and alcohol abuse as well as sadistic sexual and personality disorders, pleading guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter.
