1944: Sirhan Sirhan, who assassinated U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy on June 5, 1968, in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, is born in Jerusalem, Mandatory Palestine. Sirhan was convicted on April 17, 1969, and was sentenced six days later to death in the gas chamber. Three years later, his sentence was commuted to life in prison, owing to the California Supreme Court's decision in People v. Anderson, which ruled capital punishment a violation of the California Constitution.
