The Dutchman recently admitted he broke Flores' neck after she went on his laptop while he was out buying coffee and learned about his involvement in the 2005 disappearance of student Natalee Holloway in Aruba (he was never charged).

"I did not want to do it. The girl intruded into my private life... she didn't have any right," van der Sloot is quoted as saying according to La Republica newspaper. "I went to her and I hit her. She was scared, we argued and she tried to escape. I grabbed her by the neck and hit her."

In response to the confession, van der Sloot's lawyer in the Netherlands, Bert De Rooij, told the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant: "Joran told his mother crying Monday that he was being interrogated under reasonably barbaric conditions- he said the police were trying to force him to confess and that the confession was possibly false."
