CORCORAN, Calif. â€” Mass murderer Charles Manson plans to marry a 26-year-old woman who left her Midwestern home and spent the past nine years trying to help exonerate him.
Afton Elaine Burton, the raven-haired bride-to-be, said she loves the man convicted in the notorious murders of seven people, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate.
No date has been set, but a wedding coordinator has been assigned by the prison to handle the nuptials, and the couple has until early February to get married before they would have to reapply.
A group of young friends recently gathered for a party, but it wasn't the usual kind one thinks of when the guests are young and basically carefree.
This group of girls spent their time "packing," but they were not focusing on personal items or fun things for a day of frivolity. They were packing shoeboxes, though the contents had nothing to do with footwear.
The party, held at the home of Addison Davis, included first-sixth-grade girls who were participating in an international mission.
