A Peruvian court has sentenced Joran van der Sloot to 28 years in prison for murder. Van der Sloot, 24, pled guilty on Wednesday to murdering Stephany Flores, a 21-year-old Peruvian woman he met at a Lima casino and subsequently strangled in her hotel room. The murder occurred in 2010—exactly five years after 18-year-old Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba after spending time with van der Sloot. Holloway was declared legally dead on Thursday.
