Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin moves to new prison

    Sirhan Sirhan, 66, spoke during a Board of Parole Suitability Hearing at the Pleasant Valley State Prison on March 2, 2011. Sirhan, serving a life sentence for the 1968 assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was transferred Friday to the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in southern San Diego County, prison officials confirmed.

SAN DIEGO » Sen. Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin was moved to a new prison in California on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Kennedy’s brother, President John F. Kennedy.

A state corrections official says Sirhan Sirhan was transferred Friday from Corcoran state prison in central California to Richard J. Donovan prison in San Diego.

Corrections spokeswoman Deborah Hoffman tells U-T San Diego that the transfer was routine and the date "an unfortunate coincidence."

Sirhan, who’s 69, is serving a life sentence for shooting Robert Kennedy in 1968 in Los Angeles.
