Joran van der Sloot, who is currently behind bars while awaiting trial, is going to be a father.
Van der Sloot is accused of first-degree murder in the death of Stefany Flores and is being held in a Peruvian jail, but that didn’t stop him from impregnating his girlfriend, a young woman who has had several unsupervised visits with him. Flores’ father, Ricardo, is shocked that an accused murderer would be given such privileges after signing a confession that he killed Stefany in a crime of passion, pleading “violent emotion”–a charge which could get him just 20 months in jail. Flores has called for an investigation into the conjugal visits.
Van der Sloot is believed to have murdered 18-year old American Natalie Holloway in 2005, while she was vacationing in Aruba. In fact, he admitted to doing so, then recanted his story. He still faces extortion charges in the U.S. after allegedly trying to get Holloway’s mother to give him $250,000 in exchange for information on where her daughter’s body is.
