"Sid Vicious charged with murder"

October 12th, 1978 The Sex Pistols' Bassist Sid Vicious (born John Simon Ritchie) was charged with the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

Nancy died from a single stab wound to the abdomen in room 100 of The Hotel Chelsea in New York City.

While there were rumors that Nancy may have been killed by one of the drug dealers who had been in their hotel room that night, Sid was indeed charged with her murder - although Sid insisted he didn't remember a thing.

Less than 4 months later, on February 2nd, 1979, Sid Vicious died from a heroin overdose. He was just 22 years old. - Ace:(
