Joran Van Der Sloot Guilty

Joran, the main suspect in Natalee Holloway’s case, confesses he’s guilty for killing a 21-year-old Peruvian woman in 2010.

Five years to the day of Natalee Holloway’s mysterious disappearance, Joran van der Sloot murdered Stephany Flores, a young woman he met in a Lima, Peru casino — and now he apologizes for the brutal crime! “Yes, I want to plead guilty,” he told the court on Jan. 11 according to CBS News. “I truly am sorry for this act. I feel very bad.”

The 24-year-old’s lawyer argued that he killed innocent Stephany because of “extreme psychological trauma” Joran experienced following the Holloway case.

Joran claims he murdered Stephany in a fit of rage after she discovered his connection to the Holloway disappearance on his laptop. But prosecutors say he intended to rob her after learning she won money at the casino where they met and then cruelly beat and strangled her.

The judges will sentence Joran on Jan. 13, and he faces a possible 30 years in jail.
