The banker faces life in prison if convicted.
Magistrate Jason Wan rejected an application for today’s costs by Jutting’s lawyer, who said the prosecution rushed the case, with its 'grave and serious allegations', when it wasn’t ready.
The Cambridge University graduate, who was 29 when he was charged in November, faces life in prison if convicted. Jutting is accused of killing Sumarti Ningsih, 23, on October 27 and Seneng Mujiasih, 29, on November 1 at his upscale apartment in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai district. No plea was entered today. Jutting’s lawyer Michael Vidler told reporters after the hearing that a plea is not normally entered at this stage.
