Parole hearing under way for ill Manson follower
 CHOWCHILLA, Calif. (AP) -- Susan Atkins, a terminally ill Charles Manson follower who admitted stabbing actress Sharon Tate 40 years ago, has slept on a gurney for much of a parole hearing that began around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The hearing in Chowchilla is still under way for Atkins, who is asking for her freedom before she dies.

She had been expected to die of brain cancer more than a year ago, but the 61-year-old woman continues to cling to life.

She was denied compassionate release in July 2008, shortly after she was diagnosed and given only months to live.

Wednesday's hearing is her regular parole hearing as a life prisoner. She was convicted of the seven Tate-LaBianca murders.

Manson Follower Susan Atkins Denied Parole

Susan Atkins, the terminally ill Charles Manson follower who admitted stabbing actress Sharon Tate 40 years ago, lost what is likely to be her last bid for freedom before she dies.

Atkins, who suffers from brain cancer, slept through most of the four-hour hearing Wednesday during which her husband-lawyer pleaded for her release and families of victims of the Sharon Tate-Labianca killings urged that she be kept behind bars until she dies.

Atkins had been expected to die of brain cancer over a year ago but the 61-year-old woman continues to cling to life.

She was denied compassionate release in July 2008, shortly after she was diagnosed and given only months to live.

Atkins was convicted of the seven Tate-LaBianca murders.

Manson Follower Susan Atkins Dies

Charles Manson follower Susan Atkins, who admitted killing actress Sharon Tate 40 years ago, has died. She was 61

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Charles Manson follower Susan Atkins, who admitted killing actress Sharon Tate 40 years ago, has died. She was 61.

California Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton said Atkins, who suffered from brain cancer, had been in hospice care in recent days. Thornton said Atkins died late Thursday night at a prison hospital in Chowchilla where she had been moved when she became ill.

Early this month, she lost her final bid for parole. She was brought to the parole board on a gurney and slept through most of her parole hearing, rousing toward the end to recite the 23rd Psalm with her husband. Survivors of victims in the notorious Tate-LaBianca murders argued against her release.
