Justice Azmi Ariffin ruled that the prosecution had proven a prima facie case against Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 26, and Vietnamese national Doan Thi Huong, 29.
He said the prosecution had proven all elements in their case.
“Thus, I now order both to enter their defence,” he said after delivering the two-and-a-half hour judgment which began at 10am.
Siti Aisyah and Doan were charged with four others still at large with killing Kim Chol, 45, by smearing his face with a poison-laced cloth.
The offence was allegedly committed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) departure hall at 9am on Feb 13 last year.
Kim Chol is the alias used by Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, when he travelled.
Four other North Korean men were jointly charged with them, but they left the country before they could be detained.
