Well, it's official: There really is someone for everyone, even literal lady killer Joran Van der Sloot. The convicted killer and alleged extortionist intends to get married next month in the Peruvian prison where he's serving a 28-year sentence, his lawyer, Maximo Altez, has announced. "He wants to marry, change his life, start a new life," Altez tells Fox News Latino. Altez will be the best man and only guest at the blessed occasion, he tells the Herald-Sun.

While Altez won't divulge the name of the, er, lucky bride, reports are swirling that it's Leydi Figueroa Uceda, a 22-year-old Peruvian who, according to the Daily Beast, has registered as Van der Sloot's common law partner so she can have conjugal visits with him. The two are also rumored to have had a son together, though Altez says that's not true. (More Joran Van der Sloot stories.)
