Lyle and Eric Menendez infamously murdered their parents in their sleep in 1989. They are both carrying out a life sentence in prison now. Both have actually gotten and maintained marriages while in prison.
Menéndez married Rebecca Sneed in 2003 while serving out his life sentence at Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, California. The now-48-year-old opened up about the unconventional relationship during a recent phone interview with ABC News as part of a two-hour special called Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers.
“One thing I’ve learned is that your physical comfort is much less important than your connection with the people around you,” Menéndez said. “I’ve found I can have a healthy marriage that is complicated and built around conversation and finding creative ways to communicate, sharing, without all the props that are normally there in marriage in terms of going out to dinner and having as much intimate time together and so on.”
Conjugal visits are prohibited for those sentenced to life without parole, ABC reports.
