Normally the story of a man getting a marriage license to finally wed the woman who’s shown her devotion to him is not newsworthy; but this time around the man in question is Charles Manson.
Yes, according to the Associated Press, Manson has obtained a marriage license to marry 26-year-old Afton Burton.
How does Burton know Manson? Well, she only just moved to a place near the prison Manson’s been held in for a much longer period of time, and she’s been visiting him in jail frequently during that time. Now, mind you, she moved nine years ago and was 16 when she first discovered Manson.
She said mere months ago that she’s in love with Manson and already considers her his wife. Burton said, “I’m completely with him, and he’s completely with me. It’s what I was born for, you know. I don’t know what else to say.”
