The submarine owner with whom missing journalist Kim Wall was last seen says she died in an "accident."

According to CNNthe submarine's owner, Peter Madsen, admitted he buried Wall in an "unspecified place" in Køge Bay during a court hearing in Denmark.

He has been charged with manslaughter.

His lawyer, Betina Hald, Engmark told Denmark's TV2 that he "accepts the arrest but still denies the crime." Initially, he denied any connection to the incident.
