Rurik Jutting Took Photos Of Sex Worker Bodies After Killing Them
A British banker accused of killing two sex workers posed with one of the dead bodies for a photo shoot, a court has heard.
Rurik Jutting, 31, allegedly sawed through the neck of the woman after he forced her to lick a toilet bowl and tortured her for three days with sex toys.
He then recorded himself ranting about the killings of Sumarti Ningsih, 23, and Seneng Mujiasih, 26, on his iPhone.
The court was shown graphic pictures of Jutting posing with the victims. In one, Ningsih's head was held up to face the lens.
The prosecution has now closed its case in the trial. Jutting has pleaded guilty to manslaughter, but not murder.
Earlier this week, we reported that prosecutor John Reading said Ningsih agreed to come home with Jutting on October 25, 2014, after he offered her a large sum of money.
She was then kept prisoner for three days. During that time, Jutting tortured her with sexy toys and pliers, the court has heard.
Her ordeal came to an end when he forced her to lick the toilet bowl, while he sawed through her neck with a knife.
After torturing her for three days, he took her into the bathroom, had her kneel in front of the toilet bowl with her hands tied behind her back. He made her lick the toilet bowl and then he cut her throat with a serrated-edged knife.
The body was stuffed into a suitcase and left on the balcony of his apartment.
In the following few days, Jutting encouraged Mujiasih to come home with him.
Shortly after arriving to his apartment, Mujiasih noticed a gag and became uncomfortable. Jutting is accused of pulling out a knife he had hidden underneath his pillow and slitting her throat.
The jury was sent home and asked by the judge to come back with an "open mind" when the trial resumes next week.
