Killer Manson gets marriage licence

Mass-murderer Charles Manson has obtained a licence to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison.

The marriage licence was issued for 80-year-old Manson and Afton Elaine Burton, who left her mid-western US home nine years ago and moved to Corcoran, California - the site of the prison - to be near Manson.

It does not specify a wedding date and indicates the couple have 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.

Ms Burton gave an interview a year ago to Rolling Stone magazine in which she said she and Manson planned to marry, but Manson said it was not true.

Ms Burton, who goes by the name "Star", said she loves Manson and they will marry next month.

She denied reports that he was not interested in marriage.
