A British investment banker charged with the murder of two prostitutes in Hong Kong was apparently 'devastated' after his fiancée - a fellow trader - cheated on him with another man. Cambridge graduate Rurik Jutting, 29, was arrested over the weekend after the discovery of one 'nearly decapitated' woman in a suitcase and another who had her throat slashed at his luxury flat. He appeared in court this morning for a short hearing in which the two charges of murder were read out to him and was remanded in custody until November 10.

It came as police said they were widening the search for possible other victims to the Philippines, where Jutting is understood to have also used sex workers.
A former acquaintance today said Jutting had been in a serious relationship with a British female trader which ended bitterly around two years ago.
The pair had become engaged, but he was left distraught when she reportedly had an affair after moving to New York from London.
The source, who declined to be named, said: 'She wanted to marry him pretty fervently and he proposed, but she ended up cheating on him.'
The fiancee was forced to fly back to London because Jutting was so heartbroken.
'It was him ultimately him who broke it off - I think he took her infidelity quite badly.'
'They tried to reconcile. But I think maybe a month or so into it he was not able to come to terms with the fact that she had been unfaithful.'
