Rurik George Caton Jutting, a British banker charged with two counts of murder after police found the bodies of two women in his apartment, sits in the back row of a prison bus as he arrives at the Eastern Law Courts in Hong Kong, November 24, 2014.

A Hong Kong court has ruled that a British banker accused of killing two Indonesian women is fit to stand trial after he underwent a psychiatric examination.

The judge also adjourned the pre-trial hearing in Rurik Jutting's case until July 6 to give prosecutors more time to examine evidence.

Jutting, who had worked for Bank of America in Hong Kong, was arrested earlier this month after police found the bodies of two women in his apartment. One was stuffed into a suitcase on his balcony.

Jutting has yet to enter a plea. He will remain in custody until his next hearing in July.
