Joran van der Sloot, who pleaded guilty Wednesday to the 2010 murder of a Peruvian woman he met at a Lima casino, was sentenced on Friday to 28 years in prison. He was also fined nearly $74,000 by the three-judge panel.
While the lengthly list of charges was read in court, van der Sloot, wearing a greet T-shirt and sweating, hung down his head. Earlier, he told the court he was "truly sorry" for the killing of 21-year-old Stephany Flores and said that he had initially wanted to "confess sincerely" for his crime.
His murder victim, Flores, was killed five years to the day after the American teen Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba, a case in which van der Sloot remains the prime suspect.

Six and a half years after she vanished in Aruba, Natalee Holloway was declared legally dead Thursday by a judge in Alabama.
Probate judge Alan King made the ruling at the request of Holloway's father. King had ruled in September that Dave Holloway had met the legal presumption of death for his daughter – and King had set Thursday as the deadline for anyone to come forward and prove she didn't die in Aruba.
Holloway's attorney said there has been no new evidence since then.
