Vincent T. Bugliosi, Manson Prosecutor and True-Crime Author, Dies at 80

He had been treated for cancer, his son, Vincent Jr., told The Associated Press in confirming the death.

The victims were stabbed repeatedly. Some were also shot. Ms. Tate, 26, who was married to the director Roman Polanski and was eight months pregnant, begged for her life before being stabbed, one of the killers, Susan Atkins, recalled later.
