Judgment awaits in the submarine death of Swedish journalist



COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – A verdict is expected Wednesday before the Copenhagen court whether Danish inventor Peter Madsen tortured and murdered a Swedish journalist on a private submarine voyage.

Madsen, 47, is charged with murder, dismemberment and indecent treatment of a corpse for the death of Kim Wall.

Madsen refused murder and said that Wall happened to have died in the submarine, but confessed to throwing her body parts into the sea.

Prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen has alleged that Wall's murder was sexually motivated and deliberate because Madsen had brought tools he usually did not take with him when sailing. He has applied for a life sentence for Madsen.

Madsen's defense attorney has said that he should only be sentenced to cut Wall to pieces.
