Erica Herrera, of Sacramento, California, is just days away from her wedding, but many are curious about her choice in a groom.
The half Hawaiian and half Hispanic bride-to-be is set marry Curtis Allgier’s at the Utah State Prison in Draper.
Allgier is currently in prison accused of shooting prison guard Stephen Anderson in 2007 while he was escorting a shackled Allgier. He is also said to have ties to white supremacists, and his body is covered in tattoos, including a number of swastikas on his face and the words “SKIN HEAD” across his forehead.
Despite the fact that he’s in prison for murder, and despite his ties to the racist regime, Herrera, 31, says Allgier is “a very sweet, loving…really kind-hearted, good person.” She went on to tell local KTVX-TV that his ties to white supremacy do not reflect what he really believes.
