Fight over Manson’s estate, remains in need of venue

LOS ANGELES >> The fight brewing over the estate and remains of cult leader Charles Manson was narrowed to a pen pal and a purported grandson — but it’s not clear where the battle will be fought.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge today scheduled a hearing later this month to determine the county where the matter should be decided.

Manson died at a hospital in Kern County in November but was incarcerated in Corcoran State Prison in neighboring Kings County.

An attorney representing the purported grandson said Los Angeles County is the proper venue because Manson lived there before he was imprisoned for orchestrating the 1969 killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and eight other people.

At least two others expected to make a claim on the estate didn’t show up in court.
