HONG KONG – A Hong Kong judge has deemed a British banker charged with murdering two Indonesian women fit to enter a plea in his case based on the results of psychiatric reports.
The judge in Rurik Jutting's case on Monday also adjourned court proceedings until July to give the prosecution more time to analyze DNA and other forensic evidence.
Prosecutors said the government lab needed 28 weeks to examine more than 200 items of evidence collected from the crime scene.
The bodies of the two young women were found at Jutting's 31st floor apartment in the Wan Chai nightlife and red light district.
Jutting, who attended Cambridge and had worked for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, appeared in court unshaven and wearing the same clothes from previous appearances.
