Danish inventor denies murdering journalist Wall as trial opens

Copenhagen (AFP) – Danish inventor Peter Madsen on Thursday denied murdering Swedish journalist Kim Wall aboard his homemade 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 that he denied the murder charge and maintained his position that Wall died accidentally on board his submarine.
