Joran van der Sloot, twice arrested in the disappearance of Natalie Holloway, the 19 year-old student from Alabama, is said to be wed in June. Currently in a Peruvian jail for the murder of another student, Stephany Flores, Joran is serving a 28 year sentence. He blamed this murder on PTSD from being accused of the murder of Natalie.

His girlfriend, 22 year-ole Leydi Figueroa Uced has been regularly visiting him in Piedras Gordas prison. In October of last year Joran told the Dutch daily ‘De Telegraaf’ that she was pregnant. Apparently conjugal visits are allowed with those registered as ‘common law partners.’ By marrying a Peruvian he can apply for citizenship making it more difficult to extradite him back to America to face any charges.
