Peter Madsen sentenced over Kim Wall murder

Senior Political Correspondent

The Danish inventor Peter Madsen has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of journalist Kim Wall on board his submarine. The judge told him it had been a “cynical murder” of a journalist who’d been carrying out her duties, finding him guilty of premeditated murder and sexual assault. Ms Wall’s dismembered remains were discovered at sea in August last year, more than a week after she went missing. Mr Madsen said he would appeal the verdict.
