Former Hong Kong banker Rurik Jutting, brutally murdered two prostitutes in his high-rise apartment after taking enough cocaine that would put most people in a “coma,” jurors were told during his trial on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Rurik Jutting, a British native who was working for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, has been charged in the 2014 savage killings of 23-year-old Sumarti Ningsih and 26-year-old Seneng Mujiasih in his extravagant apartment in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai red-light district.

During Wednesday’s testimony in High Kong’s High Court, a key witness reported that Jutting snorted about 60 grams of coke — which is equivalent to 2 ounces — over a three-day span, along with a vat of wine, as he tortured Ningsih, and then slit her throat, The Mirror reported.

“He had a liberal use of alcohol with three to four bottles of wine a day, allowing him to use a huge amount of the stimulant drug,” Dr. Lau Fei Lung, director of Hong Kong’s Poisoning Information Centre, told the jury.

“Three to four bottles of wine daily would result in many social drinkers falling into a coma,” the doctor testified, adding that the man also consumed many Red Bull energy drinks.

Lung also noted that Jutting was taking a poor quality cocaine, which led to his excessive use of the drug so he could get high.

The doctor also pointed to 27 empty parcels of coke that were discovered by police, revealing that “ten grams at this concentration would be normal to three grams of [high purity] cocaine. It has been reported that people can consume that dose without a fatality.”

After murdering Ningsih in the early morning hours of October 27th, 2014, Jutting then proceeded to take a slew of cell phone pictures displaying her nearly decapitated head.

Her severely decomposed remains – with maggots squirming over it — was later found packed in a suitcase on his 31st-floor balcony, officials revealed.

Four days later, he tortured and executed Mujiasih.
