The 22-year-old Dutch national told the newspaper De Telegraaf that "One of them even wants me to get her pregnant."

Van der Sloot has been charged with the premeditated murder of Flores in his hotel room in Lima, Peru - five years to the day after the 2005 disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

He is the main suspect in Holloway's disappearance, but her body has never been found and he has never been charged.

He met both women in casinos and is the last person known to have seen them alive.

According to Peruvian police, van der Sloot offered a complete confession to Flores' murder. Van der Sloot later claimed he only confessed because he was intimidated and was promised he would be extradited to the Netherlands.

A self-described liar, van der Sloot also has made and retracted several confessions of involvement in Holloway's disappearance.

He faces a sentence of 15 to 35 years, if convicted.

Graphic crime scene photos, obtained exclusively by 48 Hours | Mystery from sources close to the investigation and published exclusively by Crimesider, show a severely beaten Flores, her body badly bruised, her clothes stained with blood.
