Erik and Lyle Menendez, two brothers who killed their millionaire parents, were reunited in a California prison according to jail officials. The Menendez brothers were confirmed to be assigned to the same housing unit in their California prison where they will stay for the 1996 murder of their parents.

Terry Thornton, a spokesman with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said Erik Menendez was moved to the same unit as his brother Wednesday night. "Just because they're in the same unit doesn't mean they've had contact yet, but it's a programming facility, meaning the inmates participate in rehabilitation programs and have the ability to interact with one another," Thornton said.

According to Thornton, it was Lyle, 47, who asked to be moved closer to Erik at his last hearing regarding his inmate classification status. Officials allowed him to be moved February 22 from Mule Creek State Prison in Northern California to the R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego. "He had been asking for it, and the department could find no reason they could not be at the same prison," she explained.

"There are people who are related who may also be crime partners, and it's not unprecedented for them to be living in the same prison or even sharing the same cell," Thornton added. Both brothers will spend the rest of their lives in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of their parents Jose and Kitty Menendez while they watched TV inside their $5 Beverly Hills estate.
The two brothers shot their father multiple times in the head but initially only wounded their mother. When their mother didn't die, Lyle walked out to his car and reloaded his shotgun before returning to the home to finish the job as his mother tried in vain to crawl away. The brothers said they committed the murders after years of abuse, but prosecutors say they killed their parents for their $14 million fortune.
