Charles Manson to Marry Prison Visitor

By Gary Cutlack on at

Charles Manson, the 80-year-old US murderer, has been granted a license to get married. His victim will be a 26-year-old "groupie" who's been visiting him in jail for nine years.

Afton Elaine Burton has 90 days to marry Manson now the marriage license has been issued, as long as it can be arranged with prison authorities. By becoming family, Burton says she'd have extra rights currently not afforded to her. [Mashable]
