Manson: The Women Bonus Ronald Hughes
Richard Pfeiffer, the attorney for former Manson Family member Leslie Van Houten, talks through his client's trials. During Van Houten's initial trial, her attorney Ronald Hughes died. Hughes knew Charles Manson and the other Family members before the murders took place and had visited Spahn Ranch in the past. According to former LA County Prosecutor Stephen Kay, Manson became infuriated when Hughes did not go "along with the program," and after breaking for a recess, Hughes never returned to the courtroom. His body was found six months after he disappeared.
