The Arizona Department of Public Safety has issued a marriage license for all marriages with names of murder or the death of a defendant, according to The Arizona Republic.
The department said that a marriage is valid in the state of Arizona if it was performed on January 5, 2016, and that a certificate is required for any marriage with the name of murder.
The Arizona Republic reported that the department has issued more than 1,000 marriage licenses to people with names including ‘Killer Mary’ and ‘The Death of Mary’.
The Arizona Daily Star reported that at least 13 states have such laws.
The law also requires that a certified copy of the marriage certificate be kept on file with the county clerk.
