Charles Manson's girlfriend 'Star' is a pretty 25-year-old, a prim dresser with a "fun sense of humour".
And she wants to marry a 79-year-old prison inmate whose name is Charles Manson.

Charles Manson's girlfriend says she and the killer are going to tie the knot behind bars, but the notorious killer has other ideas.
"I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married," Manson’s 25-year-old girlfriend, "Star," tells Rolling Stone.
"When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband," she said.
If the 79-year-old serial killer wants to take a wife, the only thing stopping him is cold feet, the New York Post reports.
California prison rules allow inmates to marry anyone but a fellow inmate in the same institution.
Star,a name given to her by the 79-year-old cult leader, moved next to California's Corcoran State Prison when she was just 19 to be closer to him and has recently carved an X into her forehead to match his swastika
Manson has spent 44 years in prison, including the last 15 at the state prison in Corcoran, for the grisly 1969 murders of actress Sharon Tate, her unborn baby, her guests and other victims.
Susan Atkins, a blond member of the "Manson family" that carried out the bloody slayings, died in prison in 2004.
"Star," who moved to Corcoran, California to be close to Manson after reading his environmental writing when she was 19, bears a striking resemblance to Atkins. She recently cut an "X" in her forehead, and says she and Manson would be married by now if California still allowed conjugal visits for "lifers".
"People can think I’m crazy," she said. "But they don’t know. This is what’s right for me. This is what I was born for."
However, Manson seemed less sure, telling Rolling Stone talk of a wedding was "garbage".
"That's trash. We're just playing that for public consumption," Manson told the magazine.
