LOS ANGELES – He may not be everyone’s idea of a good catch, but mass murderer Charles Manson has been granted a marriage licence to wed a 26-year-old woman who has been visiting him in prison.
Manson, 80, who is serving a life sentence for slaying seven people, plans to marry Afton Elaine Burton, 54 years his junior and described in US media as a slender brunette.
“He has received a marriage licence,” the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation told AFP on Monday.
The licence was applied for on Nov 7, according to the website for King’s County, California, where Manson is in jail, but no date for the nuptials has been set. – AFP
