Danish inventor Peter Madsen charged with journalist's murder: prosecutors

Danish inventor Peter Madsen charged with journalist's murder: prosecutors

In a case that Buch-Jepsen described as "very unusual and extremely gross", the inventor has also been charged with sexual assault, without intercourse, of a particularly risky nature.

Initially, Mr Madsen said he had dropped Kim Wall off safely in Copenhagen, but the 46-year-old later changed his story to say there had been a "terrible accident", that he had "buried her at sea" and planned afterwards to take his own life by sinking his submarine.

Court psychiatrists who have carried out an assessment of Madsen recommended on Monday that the submarine and rocket builder may need to be kept in "safe custody".

He described the case as "very unusual and extremely disturbing".

Danish prosecutors have formally charged inventor Peter Madsen with murdering Swedish journalist Kim Wall during a trip on his submarine last August, saying he either cut her throat or strangled her.

According to the charge sheet, Madsen is accused of "prior planning and preparation".

Madsen, an eccentric self-taught engineer, has offered shifting versions of what occurred.

USA officials warned Jared Kushner about Wendi Deng Murdoch
He included that she "has definitely no learning of any garden ventures financed by the Chinese government". Born in Shandong, China in 1968, her birth name was Deng Wenge, which translated to "cultural revolution".

The trial has been set for March 8 and a verdict is expected on April 25.

Investigators recovered and searched the vessel, which police believe Madsen sank intentionally.

He then went on to change his version of events several times.

His homemade submarine Nautilus, launched in 2008, was the biggest private sub ever made when he built it with help from a group of volunteers.

He has also been charged with the indecent handling of her corpse.

In the indictment, the prosecution claims the inventor's submarine should be confiscated and scrapped.
