Charles Manson's remains will be given to grandson

"No sufficient probative evidence was provided to this court to refute Freeman's claim", Commissioner Alisa R. Knight said in her ruling.

Freeman maintained Manson died without a will and that any such document anyone claims to possess is a forgery.

Manson, who spent almost 50 years behind bars and was denied parole a dozen times, died November 19 at age 83 at Bakersfield Mercy Hospital of heart failure triggered by colon cancer that had spread to other areas of his body.

He had been serving a life prison sentence for orchestrating the 1969 killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and eight others. His name synonymous to this day with unspeakable violence and depravity.

Jason Freeman, Charles Manson's purported grandson, speaks to reporters outside court on January 26, 2018 in Los Angeles. Bugliosi said: "Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values".

On March 7, the Kern County court said a decision would be released in a few days.

The fight for Manson's remains was waged between Freeman, a man who claims he was fathered by Manson before his followers carried out the heinous killings, and a pen pal who collects so-called Manson memorabilia.

The three all tried to cast doubt on the authenticity of the competing claims and Freeman largely won out because of problems with the other petitions.

To prevent photos of the body from being leaked, the coroner's office stored Manson's remains under a pseudonym and only two employees were told its true identity, Walters said. And there were questions about whether Michael Brunner was fathered by Manson and if he deserved to be deemed an heir because he was adopted.

"Freeman is hereby determined to be the surviving competent adult next of kin of the decedent".

Lentz claimed that Manson fathered him during a Wisconsin orgy and was named as his sole beneficiary in a 2017 will that Manson purportedly signed. Channels says he has Manson's will, granting him the remains.

Freeman, a former professional mixed martial arts fighter from Florida, is the son of the late Charles Manson Jr., who was the child of Manson and his first wife. The 2002 will he filed names him as the executor and sole beneficiary of the estate.

Most of the people vying for the body have said they would cremate it, though Freeman's attorney balked at that suggestion when Deputy Kern County Counsel Bryan Walters suggested at hearing last week that the coroner could cremate the body and allow the parties to continue their court fight over the ashes.

Some adversaries have suggested others want to profit off the death by selling morbid photos of the corpse to tabloid publications.
