Just two years into his 28-year murder conviction, Joran Van der Sloot is set to marry inside a Peru prison, his attorney Maximo Altez announced.

His attorney informed Peru media of the pending nuptials without providing any details on who the bride might be.  Van der Sloot has been busy on the romantic front.  Last June the convicted killer and lead suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, had reportedly fathered a son with Leydi Figueroa Uceda.  Since then the 22-year-old has denied being the mother of any prison love child.

In 2010 interviews the then 22-year-old Dutchman boasted of all the marriage proposals he was receiving in prison. 

According to Altez the wedding will take place in the Miguel Castro Castro prison where Van der Sloot is serving his sentence for the murder of Peruvian Stephany Flores, a young woman he met in a local Lima casino.
