Sen. Robert F. Kennedy's assassin was moved to a new prison in California on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Kennedy's brother, President John F. Kennedy.
A state corrections official says Sirhan Sirhan was transferred Friday from Corcoran state prison in central California to Richard J. Donovan prison in San Diego.
Corrections spokeswoman Deborah Hoffman tells U-T San Diego that the transfer was routine and the date "an unfortunate coincidence."
Sirhan, who's 69, is serving a life sentence for shooting Robert Kennedy in 1968 in Los Angeles.
