Court rejects banker's appeal of his conviction in gruesome murder case

A Hong Kong court on Friday rejected a British banker's appeal of his conviction in the gruesome murders of two Indonesian women.

Bloomberg News reports that three Court of Appeal judges said in their decision that Rurik Jutting's appeal had no merit.

Jutting is serving a life sentence for the 2014 killings of the two women in a case that shocked the Asian financial capital, which has a reputation for being safe.

A jury found Cambridge University-educated Jutting guilty at his 2016 trial of the brutal killings of Seneng Mujiasih, 26, and Sumarti Ningsih, 23.

Jutting's legal team failed to convince the court that the trial judge gave incorrect instructions to the nine-person jury on reaching a verdict.
