Overview

A series of murders in the summer of 1969 terrified California residents and baffled police. The victims -- including a famous Hollywood actress, a middle-aged couple, and a young music teacher -- were slaughtered savagely. The investigation led to a group of hippies living in the desert who appeared to be responsible for the crimes. Their leader, Charles Manson, had a motive that was stranger than the killings themselves. In The Charles Manson Murder Trial, author Michael J. Pellowski tells the chilling story of the hippie cult and their leader, describing the crimes they committed and the police and prosecutors who brought them to justice. He explores the time in which the strange events took place and the legal questions that emerged in one of the most notorious trials in American history.
