Erik Menendez Marries in Prison

June 15, 1999 GMT

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) _ Erik Menendez got married in prison over the weekend.

Menendez, 28, was wed Saturday at the state prison in Sacramento, said prison spokesman Billy Mayfield. Officials were uncertain of the bride’s identity.

Menendez and his brother, Lyle, are serving life sentences for murdering their parents in 1989 in their Beverly Hills mansion.

The brothers admitted shooting Jose and Kitty Menendez but said they did it out of fear that their parents were about to kill them to prevent disclosure of their father’s molestation of Erik. Prosecutors said the sons were after their parents’ millions.
