Danish inventor Peter Madsen given life sentence for the murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall



Danish inventor Peter Madsen has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of the Swedish journalist Kim Wall on his submarine.

 
Prosecutors said Madsen had planned to kill Ms Wall, 30, either by suffocating her or cutting her throat.


Her dismembered remains were found by Danish police at sea on 21 August last year, 11 days after she interviewed him on board his homemade vessel.


Madsen, 47, was sentenced on Wednesday at a court in Copenhagen.


He was found guilty of premeditated murder and sexual assault after previously admitting to dismembering Ms Wall's body on the submarine and throwing her remains overboard.
His claim that Ms Wall's death was accidental was dismissed by the court.
