Rurik Jutting was convicted unanimously by a nine-person jury at the High Court on Tuesday of killing 23-year-old Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasih, 26.

Prosecutors said Jutting was using cocaine while he tortured Ms Sumarti for three days and then slit her throat.

Jurors were shown graphic smartphone video clips of the torture filmed by the 31-year-old, who stuffed her body inside a suitcase that he left on the balcony of his luxury apartment near Hong Kong's famous Wan Chai red-light district.

Ms Seneng Mujiasih was killed days later.
