Nicoline Plintic Pedersen was found lifeless in a pool of blood on 14 July 2020 in an apartment in a house on Københavnsvej in Køge. In the building was also the small restaurant WokAmok.
Prosecutors believe the 19-year-old killed her and that he did so by agreement and planning with a 23-year-old man who is also charged in the case.
It was the 23-year-old who contacted the police after the murder. At that time, he found himself in Horsens, several hundred kilometers from the crime scene.
The interrogation reports, which Kirsten Waage Jensen reads out from, show that the 19-year-old has changed his explanation several times in the case. First, he explained that Nicoline wanted to kill him and that on the day of the murder, two people arrived at the house.
The closer connection has not been elaborated on Wednesday. But the interesting thing is that the 19-year-old at an interrogation in November chose to confess.
Here he told that he and the other accused had talked about Nicoline Plintic being killed. He also told that it was he who did it.
But in May 2021, he got a new defense attorney. And in doing so, he chose to withdraw the confession. Kirsten Waage Jensen wants to know why.
– I was 18 years old and really wanted to just talk to my parents without the police being present, the 19-year-old man says today.
He refers to the fact that he, as the remand prisoner, was subject to a so-called letter and visit control, where the police had to monitor both his visit and any communication with the outside world outside the walls.
His explanation now is that he and Nicoline sold drugs together. In that connection, a quarrel had arisen with a mastermind, a rocker named Karim Albino.
The prosecution believes that this Albino does not exist.
The 19-year-old has told the court that Nicoline was killed by two rockers sent by Karim Albino, whom he has never met, and has only spoken to once via an audio chat.
– If it was him. I only know that it was not S (co-defendant’s name, ed.).
The interrogation of the 19-year-old continues on Wednesday. The 23-year-old co-defendant has said he will not testify in court.
Judgment in the case is expected on October 28.
