(PCM) Convicted killer 80-year old Charles Manson and his young fiancee 26-year old Afton “Star” Burton have received the marriage license and are set to wed in a prison ceremony.
The couple have 90 days to complete the wedding ceremony after obtaining their license or else they must reapply again. Manson is currently serving a life sentence at Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran, California.
Burton relocated to Corcoran to be closer to Manson and speaks to him by phone at least once a day and visits every weekend. Her days are spent painting and maintaining Manson’s various social media sites.
Burton revealed to CNN that her goal is to eventually get Manson out of prison, claiming that he had nothing to do with the seven murders that took place in August of 1969 which he was convicted of being the mastermind behind.
Manson and Burton are allowed only one hug at the beginning and end of their weekend visits and even after they are wed, the two will not be allowed conjugal visits due to Manson’s life sentence.
A spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says that the wedding ceremony must take place on a visiting day and that Manson and Burton will be allowed to have up to 10 guests from outside the prison and two from inside the prison, as well as, an officiant of their choice. There will be absolutely no outside photography permitted.
The news about Manson and Burton’s upcoming nuptials has been sparking a ton of controversy online with many claiming that it truly speaks volumes for the sanctity of marriage these days.
