Joran van der Sloot Confesses to Murder in Peru

Joran van der Sloot has confessed to killing Stephany Flores Ramirez in his Lima hotel room, according to Peruvian government authorities.

CNN reports: Van der Sloot will likely be held at one of three maximum security prisons -- Castro Castro, Piedras Gordas and Lurigancho, authorities said. 

At his first court appearance, the judge may set a hearing date for van der Sloot and could order additional investigations in the case.

The Peruvian justice system often issues a lighter sentence in cases where the suspect confesses. That may have influenced his alleged confession.
