I think she started to faint. It affected me so that I grabbed her from the neck and strangled her for a minute. After I responded with hitting her, I feared that she would go to the police and they would detain me for what was an impulsive act. I think I wanted to kill her because I wasn’t thinking.” Joran Van der Sloot said. Will Joran Van der Sloot give the judge another version during questioning?
