Dutch murder suspect wants lawyer in Peru


LIMA, Peru (AP) -- Officials in Peru say murder suspect Joran van der Sloot will spend all week at criminal police headquarters while being interrogated in the killing of a 21-year-old Lima woman.

The Dutchman who also is the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway has asked for his own lawyer.

Police spokesman Jose Gamboa says van der Sloot had state-appointed counsel during questioning Saturday.

Maj. Gamboa says the 22-year-old van der Sloot is being held in a cell with a bunk bed and gets three hot meals a day. The Dutchman was arrested in Chile Thursday in the May 30 murder of Stephany Flores. Security cameras recorded the two entering van der Sloot's room hotel and the Dutchman leaving alone four hours later.
