Rebecca Short, 26, from Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, told her family she was going on vacation in the US. She even posted vacation pictures from Disney World in Florida and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
WHY DID SHE MARRY A CONVICTED MURDERER?
However, instead Rebecca married Mexican-American murderer Manuel Ovante Jr, 35, who is on death row in the Eyman prison in Florence, Arizona, according to the Daily Mail. He is currently awaiting his execution date.
Rebecca Short became pen pals with Ovante, who described himself as a “goofball” who is “loyal” and “easy to get along with.” The photograph is circulating on social media and has caused a stir among the residents of that community, who are shocked by the nurse traveling all this way to marry a death row inmate.
WHAT CRIME DID OVANTI COMMIT?
Manuel Ovante has spent more than a decade in jail after being sentenced to death for murdering a man and woman while looking for drugs in 2008. He was sentenced in 2010 and was allowed to leave his cell for the April 14 wedding.
Ovante had written: “I love to read and listen to music. I have a daughter named Bonnie. I’m not quite sure what I’m looking for in a pen pal, so I guess you’ll have to surprise me.” Filed Under: Nurse marry condemned death
WHAT DO HER FRIENDS THINK?
“I guess someone who help me make my time here easier. Someone who has a sense of humor and enjoys life.” One of Rebecca’s friends told The Sun that, “She was always obsessed with watching Netflix documentaries about serial killers in America, but no one thought she’d run off and marry one.”
Rebecca’s neighbor in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire said of the bizarre marriage: “She told me about it, but I really do not want to talk about it, it’s not my family.” To see the video click here. Filed Under: Nurse marry condemned death
