Joran van der Sloot pleaded guilty to murder Wednesday in the 2010 killing of a 21-year-old Peruvian woman.

Van der Sloot, who was arrested but not charged in the 2005 disappearance of 19-year-old Natalee Holloway on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba, admitted killing Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room on May 30, 2010, after the two left a casino together.
“Yes, I want to plead guilty. I wanted from the first moment to confess sincerely,” he told the court. “I truly am sorry for this act. I feel very bad.”
The three-judge panel said sentencing would be Friday. Van der Sloot faces up to 30 years in prison for slaying Flores, though the guilty verdict was aimed at winning a lighter sentence.
