Charges due over submarine killing
Formal charges against a Danish inventor, who admitted dismembering the body of a Swedish journalist aboard his submarine, but who denies killing her, are likely to be laid in December.
Police in Copenhagen said Peter Madsen has voluntarily accepted extending his pretrial detention, until December 12.
The 46-year-old faces preliminary charges of manslaughter, sexual assault, and indecent handling of a corpse. He denies killing journalist, Kim Wall — claiming she died inside his submarine when he was on deck — but has admitted to throwing her body parts into the sea.
