He had previously confessed to beating Stephany Flores to death, and earlier today (June 11) Joran van der Sloot was formally charged with murder.
The 22-year-old Dutch man will be tried in a Peruvian court for the heinous crime, including a robbery charge as well.
Van der Sloot met Miss Flores at a poker table in a Lima, Peru casino. Shortly thereafter he took her back to his room, beat her face in, and stole her wallet.
In related news, Joran also hinted that he knew the whereabouts of Natalee Holloway’s remains. He is believed to have killed her 5 years ago in Aruba.
