A Kern County court ruled that the remains of cult leader Charles Manson will go to his grandson, Jason Freeman.

Three people had claims to Manson's remains: Jason Freeman, who claimed to be Manson's grandson, Michael Brunner, who claimed to be Manson's son and oldest living relative, and Michael Channels, who was Manson's penpal for 30 years.
