Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Even though it isn’t going to be a shotgun wedding, Charles Manson's girlfriend says they're getting married.

The most notorious murderer in U.S. history is supposedly getting hitched to his 25-year-old girlfriend, whom he named Star.

“I’ll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married,” she told Rolling Stone. “When that will be, we don’t know. But I take it very seriously. Charlie is my husband.” She has been visiting him regularly since she was 19.

Manson, 79, is still imprisoned in California. State law permits inmates to marry anyone but a fellow inmate in the same institution. Unfortunately for the couple, California prison inmates no longer get conjugal visits.

He has been behind bars in Corcoran for the last 44 years for the 1969 murders of actress Sharon Tate, her unborn baby and others.

Star has become one of Manson’s most loyal supporters, and recently carved an X into her forehead.

“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.”

Star would be Manson’s third wife, but Manson doesn't seem too into it.

"Oh that," he said about the wedding. "That's a bunch of garbage. You know that, man. That's trash. We're just playing that for public consumption."
