KILLED: Jut­ting sliced the throat of Se­neng Mu­ji­asih ( TWISTED killer Rurik Jut­ting slept with two “ladyboys” and a post-op trans-sex­ual as his life spi­ralled out of con­trol, a court has heard.

Cam­bridge grad­u­ate Jut­ting, 31, also trawled dat­ing sites for men will­ing to have sex with pros­ti­tutes he was with.

But when that failed he went on gay app Grindr to find black men to have sex with, but with­out suc­cess.

Jut­ting is on trial for the tor­ture and mur­der of two pros­ti­tutes in Hong Kong, where he worked as a banker.

De­fence coun­sel Tim Owen QC read a re­port pre­pared by a foren­sic psy­chol­o­gist who has worked with in­mates at Broad­moor Hos­pi­tal.

He told the court: “For two weeks be­fore the of­fences his life was spi­ralling out of con­trol. It was chaotic…there was an in­creas­ing de­scent into more ex­treme be­hav­iour.

“As well as hav­ing sex with a post-op­er­a­tive trans-sex­ual and two ladyboys, he also looked for men to have sex with women he was with.

“When that failed he went on to Grindr to find black men to have sex with him.”

Mr Owen quoted Jut­ting as telling the psy­chol­o­gist: “I was try­ing to do ev­ery­thing I could to get new ex­pe­ri­ences but al­ways ended up dis­ap­pointed.”

Days later af­ter pre­par­ing a tor­ture kit of sex toys, pli­ers sand­pa­per and a blow torch he slit the throat of In­done­sian hooker Se­neng Mu­ji­asih, 26, and Se­neng Mu­jasih, 23. His trial in Hong Kong also heard the last call he had made be­fore po­lice arrested him, was to his boss at Bank of Amer­ica Mer­rill Lynch.

Jut­ting told him: “I’m in a lot of trou­ble. You need to do some­thing to pro­tect the rep­u­ta­tion of the bank.”

Jut­ting is be­ing held in a prison in the for­mer Bri­tish colony where the 28-page re­port was pre­pared.

Other de­tails to emerge from the in­ter­view with him were that when Jut­ting left Bar­clays to take up his new job in 2010 he ”took a mas­sive amount of information with him”.

Mr Owen said: “As a re­sult he de­scribed his ca­reer as stel­lar and he was earn­ing £270,000 a year by 2012.”

The court heard that late that year Bank of Amer­ica Mer­rill Lynch were rais­ing con­cerns with Jut­ting, who was fly­ing the world try­ing to mar­ket a tax prod­uct, and there were sug­ges­tions he had vi­o­lated reg­u­la­tions.

As a re­sult bank chiefs moved him to Hong Kong in Septem­ber 2013.

Mr Owen told the court that by then Jut­ting was drink­ing nearly a bot­tle of vodka a day to sleep and was also heav­ily us­ing co­caine.

In March 2014 he went to a friend’s wed­ding and stayed at the Lon­don Wal­dorf As­to­ria where Mr Owen said he went on a “long co­caine binge” and met sex work­ers.

Mr Owen told the court: “He re­mained on in Lon­don and he failed to turn up at a work meet­ing that had been ar­ranged.

“He told his em­ploy­ers that he con­tracted HIV be­fore fly­ing back to Hong Kong.”

Bosses emailed him ask­ing him to “cur­tail his ac­tions” as in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­tin­ued, which Jut­ting de­scribed as “turn­ing point in his ca­reer”.

Read­ing an­other ex­cerpt from the re­port Mr Owen said: “His sex­ual in­ter­ests had be­come more and more ex­treme. There was an es­ca­la­tion in his propen­sity to con­trol oth­ers and be more ag­gres­sive and this com­bined with his use of vi­o­lent porn.”

He failed to show up for work the fort­night be­fore the killings and the re­port stated: “His increased use of co­caine and al­co­hol in com­bi­na­tion with a nar­cis­sis­tic per­son­al­ity dis­or­der cre­ated a sit­u­a­tion in which his life moved from one of man­aged suc­cess to be­ing out of con­trol.”

Jut­ting, of Cob­ham, Sur­rey, de­nies mur­der­ing the two women but ad­mits killing them due to di­min­ished re­spon­si­bil­ity.
