Charles Manson is Getting Married!?

Charles Manson is Getting Married!?

Charles Manson is an American serial killer and musician born on November 12, 1934. Charles Manson is currently 80 years old and is serving life in prison at Corcoran State Prison because the Supreme Court of California stopped the death penalty law in 1972. Manson applied for parole and was denied on April 12, 2012 because he did not show any remorse for the 108 violations he received since 1971. He was born in the General Hospital, in Cincinnati, Ohio to parents Kathleen Maddox and Colonel Walker Scott. He was a singer and songwriter in the Los Angeles music industry whose songs were released commercially after being convicted of murders. A few of his songs were covered by Marilyn Manson, White Zombie and Guns N’ Roses. Manson had two wives and three kids that were proven by paternity but he claims to have other children. He was convicted of notoriously murdering seven people (master-minding the murders even though he made the mistake of the house occupants, right house wrong people) including pregnant actress Sharon Tate, wife of Roman Polanski. Manson is eligible for parole in 2027 because he would have spent more than half of his life in prison at that point.

FX's 'From Hell' TV Series Confirmed - Jack the Ripper TV Series

FX's 'From Hell' TV Series Confirmed - Jack the Ripper TV Series

I saw From Hell (2001) starring Johnny Depp and have to admit that I liked it and watched it a few times since. FX has greenlit a new TV series based on the graphic novel written by Alan Moore. FX’s From Hell TV series will feature a screenplay written by David Arata (Children of Men). The movie did not follow the source material too closely and it has not been confirmed how closely the TV series will either. I am excited to see what happens because Jack the Ripper was such an interesting character and quite the mystery for years, until the mystery of Jack the Ripper was solved recently.
