Danish inventor denies journalist murder

Mar 9, 2018-

Danish inventor Peter Madsen on Thursday denied murdering Swedish journalist Kim Wall aboard his self-built submarine last year as his highly-anticipated trial opened in Copenhagen. Madsen, who has previously admitted dismembering Wall’s body and throwing her remains overboard, did not address the court but his lawyer Betina Hald Engmark said he denied the murder charge and maintained his position that the reporter died accidentally on board his submarine. Wearing a black t-shirt, jeans and black eyeglasses, Madsen appeared calm in court, his gaze often looking downwards. The trial, scheduled to last until April 25, is expected to shed more light on the circumstances of Wall’s grisly death on board Madsen’s Nautilus submarine on August 10, 2017.
