A Peruvian judge issued an order Friday that Joran van der Sloot be jailed on first degree murder and robbery charges in 21-year-old Stephany Flores' death.

Judge Juan Buendia has ordered that Van der Sloot be held in a penitentiary pending trial, the Associated Press reports. According to the news agency, the accused killer was taken along with seven other prisoners to a cell in the basement of Lima's judicial palace. As he was transported by police, a blanket was draped over his head and citizens yelled "Murderer" and "Disgrace," with some throwing rotten vegetables at him, according to the AP.

The AP also reports that Van der Sloot faces between 15 and 35 years in prison if convicted on the charges.
