Is he starting a new family? Officials confirm that Manson, 80, and Afton Elaine “Star” Burton, 26, have a marriage license and intend to wed. He’s doing life for convincing his “Family” cultists to carry out ghoulish murders in the late 1960s, including that of actress Sharon Tate. One devotee even shot at U.S. President Gerald Ford. Since California allows marriages in prison visiting areas, Manson can tie the knot with Burton, who runs several websites maintaining his innocence. But conjugal visits are not allowed.
