The murders were even more damning because Jutting had been given every possible material advantage in life from a very privileged upbringing to a great career and immense pay check, the judge said.
“They are sickening in the extreme and beyond a normal person’s imagination … There are insufficient superlatives to describe what he did.”
In a statement read out by Jutting’s lawyer, Tim Owen, Jutting said he was haunted daily by what he had done.
“The evil can never be remedied by me, nevertheless … I am so sorry. I am sorry beyond words,” Owen said, citing Jutting.
Jutting, the grandson of a British policeman in Hong Kong and a local Chinese woman, had argued cocaine and alcohol disorders as well as personality disorders of sexual sadism and narcissism had impaired his ability to control his behavior.
