LOS ANGELES (AP) - A former Charles Manson follower who was on the brink of release from prison two years ago before then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger intervened is scheduled to go before another parole board panel.
Bruce Davis was not involved in the infamous murders by Manson followers of actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles. He has been serving life sentences for two other slayings that took place in 1969.
Wednesday's hearing at the California Men's Colony at San Luis Obispo will be his 27th parole hearing.
Davis long maintained that he was just a bystander in the killings of stuntman Donald "Shorty" Shea and musician Gary Hinman. But he acknowledged responsibility at his last parole hearing in 2010.
The state parole board determined that he was ready to be released, but Schwarzenegger reversed the decision.
Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Patrick Sequeira says he will argue Wednesday that Davis still is not fully rehabilitated.
