Police give van der Sloot case to prosecutors

LIMA, Peru (AP) - Peru's criminal police chief says that Joran van der Sloot's confession in the murder of a 21-year-old woman was so complete that police decided there was no need to take him to the crime scene for a walkthrough.

Gen. Cesar Guardia says the case against van der Sloot, who also remains the lone suspect in the Natalee Holloway missing-teenager case, goes to prosecutors today so they can file formal charges.

The young Dutchman is accused of killing business student Stephany Flores by smashing her face and strangling her.

What remains unresolved is the May 30, 2005 disappearance of Holloway on the Caribbean island of Aruba.
