According to CNN, a panel of Peruvian judges on Friday sentenced Joran van der Sloot to 28 years in prison after he pleaded guilty earlier this week to killing a 21-year old woman in Peru in 2010.

Van der Sloot's prison sentence is scheduled to end on June 10, 2038, according to the CNN report.

Van der Sloot was named as a suspect in the disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba several years ago, but was never charged with a crime.
