1958: Johnny Stompanato, a former United States Marine who became a bodyguard and enforcer for gangster Mickey Cohen, is stabbed and killed by Cheryl Crane, the teenage daughter of his girlfriend, actress Lana Turner. Crane claimed Stompanato had been attacking her mother and that she had stabbed Stompanato defending her mother. The courts agreed, ruling the death to be justifiable homicide.
