Ex-BofA employee's murder case latest

Hong Kong

Rurik Jutting, the former Bank of America employee charged with murdering two Indonesian women in Hong Kong, had his case transferred to the High Court. He didn’t enter a plea.

Bloomberg News reports that magistrate Jason Wan said he took Jutting’s decision not to plead 'at this time' as 'not guilty' for the purpose of proceeding to trial, instead of sentencing.

A date will be set by the High Court for the next hearing, Jutting’s lawyer Michael Vidler told reporters after Friday’s pre-trial session.

The Cambridge University graduate, who was 29 when he was charged in November, faces life in prison if convicted. Jutting, who’s in remand, 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.
