It’s been more than 30 years since Erik and Lyle Menendez were first accused of killing their parents, who they claimed were abusive, in their Beverly Hills home, and their story still attracts plenty of attention. The latest round of attention has focused in part on whether the brothers are being housed in the same prison as they serve out their life sentences, and if they have, how long they’ve been under the same roof.
Are the Menendez brothers in the same prison?
The Menendez have lived in the same prison since 2018. It was in February of that year that Lyle Menendez was transferred from Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, California to the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego. The brothers are also living in the same housing unit in the prison.
