CHINO, Calif. (AP) - Former Charles Manson follower and convicted murderer Leslie Van Houten has been denied parole once again.
A California panel rejected Van Houten's bid for release from state prison Wednesday at her 20th parole hearing.
The 63-year-old was convicted of murder and conspiracy for her role in the August 1969 slayings of a wealthy Los Angeles couple, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. They were stabbed to death the night after Manson's followers killed actress Sharon Tate and four others.
The killings are among the most notorious murders of the 20th century.
