Notorious murderer, Charles Manson, will soon be wed to Afton Elaine Burton (who goes by the name of “Star”), the 26-year-old woman who’s spent the last nine years trying to help exonerate him and blogging about his innocence, reports AP. “Star” announced the couples’ intention to wed last year in an interview with Rolling Stone:
“I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married…When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband. Charlie told me to tell you this. We haven’t told anybody about that.”
To which Charles Manson replied:
“That’s a bunch of garbage. You know that, man. That’s trash. We’re just playing that for public consumption.”
As much as we would have liked to believe that a Manson wedding was “garbage,” it looks as if the happy couple will be walking down the prison aisle.
Although no date has been set yet, a marriage license has been issued to the 80-year-old inmate and his lady love, who have until February to go through with the nuptials.
The bride-to-be told AP that she and Manson will be married the first Saturday of next month in an inmate visiting room at the prison. The prison has even appointed them a wedding coordinator and granted Manson the right to invite an officiant from outside the prison to perform the ceremony, as well as 10 guests who are not inmates.
“Y’all can know that it’s true,” said “Star.” “It’s going to happen.I love him. I’m with him. There’s all kinds of things.”
Well, there you have it. You’d better start shopping for a wedding gift for Mr. and Mrs. Manson. Or…not.
