Love Finds Eric Menendez

Convicted killer Eric Menendez has gotten married at the Sacramento, Ca., prison where he’s serving two life sentences for the 1989 slayings of his wealthy parents, Jose and Kitty. Department of Corrections spokesman Tip Kindel says that Eric, 28, was married Saturday at the maximum-security California State Prison, but state officials weren’t allowed to disclose the bride’s identity. Kindel said Menendez doesn’t qualify for unsupervised overnight visits from his new wife, because he’s serving life terms without the possibility of parole.

  • Eric’s older brother Lyle Menendez, who was convicted with Eric for the slayings, was also married behind bars. He and pen-pal Anna Eriksson were wed during a telephone ceremony in 1996, on the day he was sentenced. The pair divorced after Eriksson said she discovered he’d been corresponding with another woman.
