Charles Manson gets marriage license
CORCORAN, CA - Mass murderer Charles Manson has gotten a license to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison.
The marriage license obtained Monday by The Associated Press was issued Nov. 7 for the 80-year-old Manson and Afton Elaine Burton, who left her Midwestern home nine years ago and moved to Corcoran, California - the site of the prison - to be near Manson.
It does not specify a wedding date and indicates the couple has 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.
Burton gave an interview a year ago to Rolling Stone magazine in which she said she and Manson planned to marry. But Manson said then it was not true.
Burton, who goes by the name "Star," told the AP that she loves Manson and they will marry next month. She denied reports that he wasn't interested in marriage.
