Extradited Convict: Peru Confirms Joran Van der Sloot will be Extradited to US

Screenshot 2014-03-10 at 8.55.45 AMPeru confirmed Sunday it will extradite Dutch convicted killer Joran Van der Sloot, serving a 28-year sentence here for murdering a young Peruvian woman, to the United States in 2038.

The widely expected decision was two years in coming. Lima had said earlier the Dutchman would be extradited to the United States, but only after he serves his sentence in Peru first.

Van der Sloot, 26, pleaded guilty and was handed down his sentence in January 2012 for the “cruel and savage” murder of 21-year-old Peruvian Stephany Flores on May 30, 2010.
