Joran van der Sloot ties the knot in Peru prison

Posted: Updated:

It's wedding day in Peru for convicted murderer Joran van der Sloot.

The 26-year-old Dutchman who remains the chief suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway was tying the knot in prison a Friday with a Peruvian woman pregnant with his child.

Van der Sloot's lawyer says prison officials prohibited video and photos during the midday nuptials and that none of the groom's relatives are expected.

Lawyer Maximo Altez says Van der Sloot's mother did send a tailored suit and dress shoes fitting his extra-large feet.

Van der Sloot was sentenced to 28 years in prison two years ago for the 2010 murder of a Lima woman he met in casino. She was killed five years to the day after Holloway's disappearance in Aruba.
