[June 22, 2010]  AMSTERDAM (AP) -- A Dutch newspaper reports that murder suspect Joran van der Sloot has boasted of receiving marriage proposals in his Peruvian jail cell.

De Telegraaf quotes Van der Sloot as saying one woman even asked him to get her pregnant. He is suspected of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores in his hotel room on May 30 and is also the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

The paper says Van der Sloot would not answer questions about Flores, on orders from his lawyer. He expressed no remorse at her death, the paper said in the interview published Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Dutchman told police in Peru he killed Flores, but he told the paper the confession was coerced. He refused to speak to the judge handling his case Monday.
