(Newser) – A jury in Hong Kong watched chilling video Tuesday of a British banker describing how he tortured and killed an Indonesian woman he met in a bar, saying he repeatedly raped her and "tortured her badly." In the video he shot, Rurik Jutting, who is on trial in Hong Kong's High Court for the American Psycho-style murder of two Indonesian women two years ago, can be seen shirtless in his apartment, the AP reports. "My name is Rurik Jutting. About five minutes ago I just killed, murdered this woman here," he says into the camera. He also pointed the camera down briefly to show the body of Sumarti Ningsih, 23, lying face down in a bathroom.

It was part of an extended, rambling monologue that continued for hours over several video clips in which Jutting discussed his use of drugs and prostitutes, whether to commit suicide, and how he felt no guilt. The graphic video was shown on the second day of Jutting's trial for murdering Sumarti and Seneng Mujiasih, 26. During his monologue, Jutting said, "I've always had dark fantasies" involving rape, torture, and murder. He said he had earned more than $1 million from his job at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong over the previous two years but had spent most of it on drugs and prostitutes. (Before the murders, prosecutors were investigating his trades.)
