Suspect in Natalee Holloway disappearance to expose details of her loss of life in plea deal, lawyer says. Joran van der Sloot is expected to plead guilty to his involvement in an extortion plot related to Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, and her own family’s lawyer said the deal will require him to show how the Alabama teenager died.
“It [the plea agreement] changed into conditioned upon Mr. Van der Sloot revealing details of how Natalee died and the way her body become disposed of,” own family legal professional John Q. Kelly informed NBC News on Sunday.
Neither a lawyer for the van der Sloot nor federal prosecutors may want to without delay be reached for comment on Monday.
Holloway disappeared on vacation in Aruba with classmates celebrating their high school graduation in 2005, and an Alabama probate courtroom declared her lifeless in 2012.
Van der Sloot, a Dutch national, has long been taken into consideration as a suspect in Holloway’s presumed slaying, and a federal grand jury indicted him in 2010 on counts of cord fraud and extortion.
He was extradited to the U.S. in June to face allegations that he demanded $250,000 from her family in trade for facts about her disappearance.
Court statistics showed he became scheduled for a plea and sentencing listening to Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Anna Manasco in Birmingham, Alabama.
But it became rescheduled, and most possibly he and the authorities have reached a deal to keep away from trial. It’s not clear what fees he might plead to.
Van der Sloot was already in custody in Peru after he was convicted of killing a Peruvian college scholar, Stephany Flores, in 2010.
