SANTA ANA, Calif. (KTLA) -- Two Orange County inmates, facing murder charges in separate cases, have tied the knot in a bizarre jailhouse wedding.
Its not that uncommon for inmates to get married while behind bars, but rarely to each other.
The bride, 20-year-old Marissa Star Bilotti, is charged with murder for helping a former boyfriend shoot and kill a man in a Huntington Beach park in 2010.
She is facing a maximum sentence of 32 years to life in prison.
The groom, 26-year-old Iftekhar Murtaza, faces the death penalty in one of Orange County's most notorious crimes.
He's accused of abducting the father and sister of his ex-girlfriend, beating them to death, and then setting their bodies on fire in an Irvine park in May 2007.
According to the OC Register, the couple "met" in January, when Bilotti sent Murtaza a letter at the suggestion of another female inmate.
By April they were engaged and have been trying to get married ever since.
Jail officials agreed to allow Murtaza and Bilotti to exchange vows inside the jail's visiting area on Monday.
But the pair were separated by a wall and could only communicate by phone.
Needless to say, the groom did not kiss the bride.
