Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Convicted killer Joran van der Sloot was reportedly stabbed behind bars in Peru.

That's according to van der Sloot's wife and his attorney.

His wife says van der Sloot was seriously hurt after fellow inmates stabbed him in the shoulder and waist. 

The head of the country's national penitentiary institute denies the claims, calling van der Sloot's wife a compulsive liar.

He's serving a 28-year sentence for killing a Peruvian woman in 2010.

He is also the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Halloway.
