(Newser) – Imprisoned Dutch killer Joran Van der Sloot is now a father. Van der Sloot's attorney says the girl was born Sunday in Lima, Peru—far from the remote prison where Van der Sloot is serving a 28-year sentence for killing a Peruvian business student in 2010. He also remains the chief suspect in the 2005 disappearance of US teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Van der Sloot married 24-year-old Leidy Figueroa in July. A month later, authorities sent him to a prison high in the Andes, saying he had threatened to kill the warden of the lockup near Lima. Their child is named Dushy after Van der Sloot's grandmother.
