The court trial of 31-year-old British banker Rurik Jutting who has admitted to murdering two Indonesian women in his Hong Kong apartment two years ago continues with more disturbing revelations brought to the fore.
It was revealed during a court hearing on Thursday that some minutes after killing his victims in his high-rise apartment, Jutting shouted and waved a knife at pedestrians on the streets far below.
Video evidence by the police on the fourth day of Jutting’s trial showed how he called the police to end his torture and killing of his victims while still under the influence of alcohol and cocaine.

Collapsing exhausted on his balcony after struggling to cut the throat of his second victim, the Cambridge University educated, former investment banker told how he then brandished a knife at people walking below.
The video evidence did not reveal what he roared from the 31st floor of his apartment building.
“When I decided to surrender, I dropped my knife,” Jutting said, describing how he barricaded himself into his bedroom and called police. He also dropped and smashed a bottle of vodka.
