Charges due over sub­ma­rine killing

Irish Examiner - - World News -

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.
