'Unfortunate Coincidence' of Kennedy Assassin Move

Saturday, 23 Nov 2013 04:27 PM

 

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.
