A court in Hong Kong on Monday adjourned the trial of a 29-year-old British banker charged with killing two women until July because of the length of time needed for prosecutors to prepare their case.
Reuters reports that Rurik Jutting, who had worked at Bank of America in Hong Kong, was charged earlier this month after police found the bodies of the women in his apartment. One was put inside a suitcase on his balcony, authorities have said.
Jutting had undergone a psychiatric assessment over the past two weeks but his lawyer, Michael Vidler, would not comment on the findings, saying he had not had time to review the reports.
Prosecutors said they would need 28 weeks to examine the large amount of exhibits and other evidence.
