Kim Wall death - what we know so far

  • Прокуратура Дании запросила пожизненный срок для владельца Nautilus

A verdict is expected at the Copenhagen City Court Wednesday on whether Danish inventor Peter Madsen tortured and murdered a Swedish journalist during a private submarine trip.

Madsen has admitted dismembering Wall's body and throwing her remains overboard, an offence punishable by six months in prison, but denies killing her.

After offering various explanations, the 47-year-old Madsen has claimed that Wall died as a result of a buildup in pressure inside his home-made UC3 Nautilus submarine.

"I am satisfied that the court has listened to what I said", prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen told reporters outside court.

Whereas arguing that Madsen shouldn't be insane, Buch-Jepsen quoted a court-ordered psychiatric report that described him as "emotionally impaired with extreme lack of empathy, anger and guilt" and having "psychopathic tendencies". Initially he told authorities that he had dropped her off on shore and did not know what had happened to her.

"There is no doubt that he murdered Kim Wall on objective and that he had a sexual motive", the prosecutor said.

Madsen's defence lawyer said he will appeal the murder conviction as well as the life sentence. However his story then changed several times.

Twin bombings kill at least 58 people in Afghanistan
TV stations broadcast live footage of hundreds of distraught locals gathered at hospitals seeking word about loved ones. The militant group has been launching a series of attacks on Kabul this year targeting the Shia Muslim minority.

The judge and two lay judges, who must decide on the verdict, watched as the prosecution showed images of her mutilated body and played a selection of more than 140 internet video clips found on Madsen's computer and iPhone.

First he said she had died in an accident when she hit her head on the submarine's hatch and he had chose to bury her at sea. He did confess to dismembering and disposing of Wall's body.

Wall's cause of death was never determined.

But he later calmly explained that he dismembered her in order to be able to lift the body out through the vessel's narrow hatch. Wall, he said, had had "a wonderful evening until it ended in an accident".

In his final arguments on Monday, prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen argued that Madsen had tortured and then murdered Wall to fulfil his violent sexual fantasies, in a case "so bad and disgusting that you as a prosecutor have no words to describe it". "It is the task of the prosecutor to prove that he is guilty", she said in her final argument before the court room.

Madsen is the 15th person in 10 years to receive a life sentence in the Nordic nation, which has a reputation as tranquil and safe.
