Dutch citizen Joran Van der Sloot, the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, will marry his pregnant Peruvian girlfriend Friday in prison where he is serving a 28-year sentence for the murder of a female student.
Joran van der Sloot's lawyer says the convicted murder is soon to be both father and husband.
Peru's government says that once Dutch citizen Joran van der Sloot completes his murder conviction in 2038, he will be extradited to the United States to face trial on charges he extorted and defrauded the mother of a young American woman for whose disappearance he is the chief suspect.
A newspaper reported Monday that Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch man who is serving a 28-year-sentence for murdering a young Peruvian woman, says he is going to be a father. His attorney said the inmate does have a conjugal visitor, though he could not confirm she was pregnant.
The Supreme Court has approved the extradition of a convicted murderer wanted in the United States in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway seven years ago.
Joran van der Sloot's lawyer says Peru's Supreme Court has approved the confessed murderer's extradition to the United States, but only after he has served out his 28-year prison sentence in the South American nation.
A Peruvian court on Friday sentenced Joran van der Sloot to 28 years in prison for murder of a young woman he met at a Lima casino, even as the family of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway sought to have him prosecuted in the U.S. over her disappearance in 2005.
An Alabama judge signed an order Thursday declaring Natalee Holloway dead, more than six years after the American teenager vanished on the Caribbean island of Aruba during a high school graduation trip.
Joran van der Sloot pleaded guilty on Wednesday to the 2010 murder of a young Peruvian woman he met at a Lima casino who was killed five years to the day after the unsolved disappearance in Aruba of an American teen in which he remains the main suspect.
A judge has ruled that the father of Natalee Holloway can proceed with legal steps to declare her dead six years after she disappeared in Aruba.
An attorney says the mother of missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway will oppose a petition by her former husband to declare their daughter dead.
Joran van der Sloot's attorney said Monday that his client will plead guilty to killing a young Peruvian woman he met while gambling but will argue temporary insanity in a bid for a shorter sentence.
A jawbone found on an Aruba beach does not belong to missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, prosecutors in the Dutch Caribbean island said Tuesday.
The Dutchman charged with killing a 21-year-old Peruvian woman and suspected in the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway has acknowledged extorting money from Holloway's parents and says he did it to get back at them.
Joran van der Sloot, the main suspect in the killing of a young woman in Peru last month and in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway, suffers from mental problems, his mother told a Dutch newspaper in an interview published on its website Sunday.
He has told his jailers in Peru he is ready to clarify the Holloway case -- but only with Aruba authorities.
Holloway was last seen alive with him on the Caribbean resort island of Aruba in 2005, and he publicly has said he killed her but then retracted his confession several times.
