Van der Sloot returns to court

Van der Sloot returns to court

CNN reports that Joran van der Sloot returns to a Peruvian courtroom on Wednesday, five days after requesting more time to “reflect” on what plea he will make in his murder trial.

The 24-year-old Dutch national indicated on Friday that he was willing to make a “confession” in the 2010 killing of Stephany Flores, but that he did “not agree with the aggravating factors” as defined in the murder charge levied against him.

On Wednesday, van der Sloot is expected to finally give his plea in the Lima courtroom. He is charged with “qualified murder” and simple robbery in the killing of 21-year-old Flores.

If found guilty on all counts, van der Sloot could face a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.
