Joran van der Sloot pleads guilty to Peru murder

LIMA, Peru (AP) -- Joran van der Sloot has pleaded guilty to the 2010 murder of a 21-year-old Peruvian woman he met at a Lima casino.

Following his plea, the judge adjourned court for the day, saying he plans on sentencing van der Sloot on Friday.

The Peruvian woman was killed five years to the day of the unsolved disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba for which he remains the main suspect.
