A former follower of Charles Manson is getting another shot at freedom.
A state parole board has recommended parole for convicted killer Bruce Davis. The 71-year-old was convicted of murder for the 1969 killings of Gary Himan and Donald Shea.
Prosecutors had said Davis carried out the killings at the insistence of Manson. The parole recommendation now goes to a 120-day review period, which includes a possible review by Governor Jerry Brown.
Davis has been recommended twice before for parole but was rejected both times by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2010 and by Governor Brown last year.
