After nearly a half century in prison, Manson Family murderer Leslie Van Houten may be set free. The parole board recommended freedom yesterday. It was her 20th appearance before the board. Van Houten was convicted of killing Leno and Rosemary LaBianca - a couple who lived in Los Feliz. She, Charles Manson and two others left a grisly scene. It was the summer of 1969 when the Manson killings took place. Van Houten is now 66 years old. Patricia Krenwinkel - another Manson murderer - is the only woman who’s been in a California prison longer.
Should Leslie Van Houten Go Free?
