Joran van der Sloot, the chief suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, is apparently getting married to a Peruvian woman, according to his lawyer. Van der Sloot is serving 28 years after being convicted of a 2010 murder.

His attorney Maximo Altez tells The Associated Press they are awaiting permission from penal authorities for a wedding within two weeks in Piedras Gordas prison.

Altez would not name the bride. Press reports say she is Leydi Figueroa Uceda, who has visited Van der Sloot often. Altez denied press reports that she bore Van der Sloot a son.

Altez sought on Wednesday a sentence reduction for Van der Sloot, who pleaded guilty to the brutal 2010 murder of a young Lima woman he met in a casino.

Van der Sloot remains the chief suspect in the 2005 disappearance in his native Aruba of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway.

Twitter was wary of the upcoming marriage.
