Serial killer Charles Manson died after 46 years in prison

Notorious serial killer, Charles Manson, who masterminded
one of the most heinous murder sprees in American history
is finally dead at age 83. He was behind the grisly 1969
killing spree that took the life of young actress Sharon Tate
and six others.
According to TMZ, the sister of his famous victim, Debra
Tate said she received a call from the prison telling her
Manson died at 8:13 PM on Sunday night.
Manson died at a Bakersfield hospital in California. He had
been serving multiple life sentences in Corcoran State
Prison in Corcoran, Calif., after being convicted in January
1971 of conspiracy to commit the murders.
Manson was a former cult leader who led what became
known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose
in California in the late 1960s. Manson's followers
committed a series of nine murders at four locations in July
and August 1969.
In 1971 he was found guilty of first-degree murder and
conspiracy to commit murder for the deaths of seven
people – including the actress Sharon Tate – all of which
were carried out by members of the group at his instruction.
Manson also received first-degree murder convictions for
two other deaths.
Manson was originally sentenced to death, but his sentence
was commuted to life imprisonment when California
invalidated the state's death penalty statute in 1972.
