Eastern High Court Says Danish Inventor Must Serve Life Sentence For Submarine Murder of Journalist

Early on Wednesday, the Eastern High Court ruled a Danish inventor Peter Madsen must serve his life sentence for murdering and dismembering a Swedish journalist on board his home-made submarine. Peter was found guilty in April of murdering and mutilating 30-year-old Kim Wall on the craft in Copenhagen harbor in 2017.

He had not appealed for being guilty, therefore the Eastern High Court only ruled on the decision to give him a life sentence which typically lasts for around 15 years in Denmark.

Her boyfriend said during the April trial Wall was interviewing Madsen for the U.S. magazine Wired on the inventor’s race against another Danish group to be the first to send a person into space in a home-made rocket.
