Kenneth Como, arrested, along with other Manson family members for the Hawthorne and Covina robberies. Extraordinary security measures were taken during the trial, in part because the defense had called as witnesses what Judge Arthur Alarcon labeled "the biggest collection of murderers in Los Angeles County at one time."
