Madsen is charged with murder as well as indecent handling of a corpse for disposing of Ms Wall’s body.

The inventor claims the journalist died accidentally inside the submarine while he was on deck during the excursion in August.

However, he has admitted throwing her body parts into the sea.

The start of the trial has been set for March 8. A verdict is expected on April 25.
