HAGÅTÑA, Guam (October 26, 2000 – Hawai‘i Public Radio)---Two convicted murderers have tied the knot in the U.S. territory of Guam.

Vincent Palomo and Marianne Dulana were married during a 15-minute ceremony at the island’s Department of Corrections.

Warden Francisco Crisostomo says the couple met in a co-ed inmate basic education course. He said it’s not unusual for inmates to marry people from outside the prison, but this is the first time two prisoners have wed.

Dulana is serving a minimum 22-year term for the 1995 stabbing death of her boyfriend.

Palomo is serving six life terms without parole in the Christmas Day 1989 murders of Guam Steel owners Gordon and Norma Sleeman.

Prison officials say Dulana and Palomo will only be able to see each other during supervised visits, and they won’t be allowed to touch.
