Joran van der Sloot pleaded guilty Wednesday to all charges against him in the killing of Peruvian Stephany Flores. "I am really sorry for what happened," he said. He pleaded guilty to "qualified murder" and simple robbery.

Police say van der Sloot killed Flores in his Lima hotel room in May 2010, then took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested a few days later.

Van der Sloot was arrested twice, but never charged, in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
