Danish submarine owner arrested over journalist's death

From BBC - August 12, 2017

A Danish submarine owner has been charged with the manslaughter of a Swedish female journalist who had been on board his vessel before it sank.

Peter Madsen, 46, denies the killing, saying he had dropped the woman off in Copenhagen before the sinking.

The woman's partner raised the alarm early on Friday when the vessel did not return from what was supposed to be a short journey.

It was later spotted but sank on Friday morning and Mr Madsen was rescued.

There was no trace of the woman, however, and police launched a search. She has still not been found.
