New Year's Eve in 1990, the 23-year-old Hanne With was found dead in her apartment.

The young woman had numerous injuries on her body, and she had been both strangled and stabbed.

Thirty-four years after the murder, a 54-year-old man is on trial in Copenhagen City Court. His DNA and footprints, according to experts, were found in the apartment.

The accused denies this. But he refuses to admit guilt for the murder, according to his explanation, he had a blackout that night.

Today, three expert witnesses are expected to testify.
