LOS ANGELES - Debra Tate, whose pregnant sister Sharon was slain in 1969 by the murderous followers of Charles Manson, has spent much of her life trying to divert attention from the cult leader and keep him in prison.

Her job got tougher with the news that Manson, now 80, plans to marry a 26-year-old woman who moved from the Midwest years ago to be near him.

Debra Tate calls the development ludicrous and insane, but she doesn't intend to abandon her crusade to stop the spread of his Internet following.

Manson's bride-to-be, Afton Elaine Burton, known as "Star," has said she loves Manson and wants to help exonerate him.

She says marrying him would provide access to information denied to nonrelatives.
