Tonight on CNN’s Larry King, Prosecutors office spokesperson, Mariane Croes, said the following:
“Paulus Van der Sloot was arrested on the suspicion of premeditated murder”
All of the suspects in custody were arrested with the same charge.
(excerpt from transcript)
KING: And why are they suspects?
CROES: At this point the general description is that they are suspected of being involved in the disappearance of Ms. Holloway. That’s the general description. But because when we arrest somebody, you have to have a reasonable suspicion of specific crimes, so at this point all the suspects are arrested on the first crime of premeditated murder.
KING: So that is — is that a charge?
CROES: At this point it is only a reasonable suspicion. The definite accusation and in American system “charge” will be made when the investigation is finished. And the prosecutor has reviewed all of the evidence pertaining to this investigation.
Also Larry King interviewed Robin Holloway, Dave Holloway and Natalee’s aunt, Marcia Twitty. Unfortunately he also had defense attorney Michael Cardoza, who really should not have been apart of this interview. Cordoza really made some insensitive comments. Transcript can be found here.
