Joran Van Der Sloot Sentencing

Dutchman Joran van der Sloot pleaded guilty this week in the murder of Peruvian college student Stephany Flores.  On Friday he was sentenced to 28 years behind bars.

Van der Sloot was attending the Latin American Poker Tour when he met Flores in a Lima casino.  He brought her back to his hostel room and bludgeoned her.

Van der Sloot is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Alabama High School graduate Natalee Holloway while she was vacationing in Aruba seven years ago. 

Once again, the 24-year-old could be seen fidgeting and rubbing his face while a Peruvian clerk listed minute by minute all events surrounding the murder of Flores.
