Gonna guess George W. Bush for now (No penalty for guessing prior to first 20 questions, I believe. If this counts as a question ignore)

Are they American?

Guess: Charles Manson

Question: To define the "killer" part, was this person actually convicted of murder?

White likely dude who killed someone from recent times. Unsure how we're defining important historical figure- would a i.e. president count as an important historical figure?
A president definitely would. I think most people would agree that this person I am thinking of is not an important historical figure.

No, they were not.

1. Not a Diplomacy player
2. Not a woman
3. Is a person that is living/has lived
4. Has killed someone
5. Is white
6. Does not wear job gloves. While not impossible, you would not associate them with gloves before thinking of many, many other things first
7. Not an important historical figure
8. Has been alive in the last 22 years (2000 or later)
9. American
10. Was not actually convicted of murder

(Not Charles Manson, not George W. Bush)

Was that person legally allowed to take the life (as mentioned in point 4) at the time it happened?

Good clarification, and I just realized that I myself may have unintentionally misled, so I'll give this one as a freebie:

1. Not a Diplomacy player
2. Not a woman
3. Is a person that is living/has lived
4. Has killed someone (illegally)/is commonly understood to have killed someone, (illegally)
5. Is white
6. Does not wear job gloves. While not impossible, you would not associate them with gloves before thinking of many, many other things first
7. Not an important historical figure
8. Has been alive in the last 22 years (2000 or later)
9. American
10. Was not actually convicted of murder

Thanks for the clear-up, I would've counted that as two separate questions since a thought of mine was someone who took a life in their line of work (like soldier, police or executioner or something like that), but if you count both together I'm thankful.

Is the killing (or killings) the main thing this person is known for?

Is this person mainly known for their involvement in the entertainment (film, music, art, etc.) industry?

Tough to give a straight yes or no answer, but I would say yes, they are mainly known from their involvement in the entertainment industry, but not for.

"From but not for" implies this is a real person who did not actually do anything in entertainment, but had something made about them in the entertainment field. So someone from recent times who isn't important, but IS A) Famous enough that 50% of people have heard of them and B)Whatever film/art thing made about them was famous enough to be responsible for why everyone knows who they are.
That's not an easy riddle.

Question: Have they had multiple movies made about them?
