Joran Van der Sloot

Joran van der Sloot is currently serving a 25-year sentence for murder but he’s not letting that minor detail affect his love life. Late last year, Joran announced that he was expecting a baby with girlfriend Leydi Figueroa Uceda and now, he’s going to be marrying her.

According to The Daily Beast, Joran’s lawyer Máximo Altez has confirmed that he will be marrying Leydi, with whom he already has a registered common-law partnership with, in early June. Joran and Leydi previously applied for the partnership to ensure that they would be allowed conjugal visits during Joran’s stay in the Piedras Gordas prison.

In 2010, Joran was charged with attempting to extort $250,000 from Natalie Holloway’s mother Beth in exchange for the exact location and details of her daughter’s death. Beth gave Joran a $25,000 deposit but instead of giving her the details as promised, Joran entered a poker tournament where he met Stephany Flores who he later killed on the fifth year anniversary of Natalie’s death after discovering that she had found information regarding Natalie’s killing on his computer.

Joran plead guilty to the murder of Stephany in January of 2012 and was sentenced to 28 years behind bars. He also faces an additional 25 years for his extortion plot against Beth.

Last year, the United States reached an agreement with Peru which would allow them to extradite Joran to American to face charges in the Natalie Holloway murder case. Unfortunately, his lawyer was able to delay the extradition and keep him in Peru. Now, by marrying a Peruvian, Joran will be eligible to apply for citizenship in Peru which will further hinder America’s chances at getting him extradited to The States.

As for Joran’s rumored baby, there have been no reports of a birth.
