Bloomberg News reports that Eastern Court Magistrate Bina Chainrai scheduled November 24 for Jutting’s next appearance at the request of prosecutor Louise Wong, who told the court today there hadn’t been a reconstruction of the murders yet as the 29-year-old didn’t consent.
The Cambridge University graduate faces life in prison if convicted of the murders of Indonesian women Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasih.
