    A former member of serial killer Charles Manson's cult family who was convicted in two of the nine 1969 brutal slayings was denied parole Tuesday before a state board panel.
    Bruce Davis, 62, has gone before the panel at the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo more than 20 times.

    Although the Louisiana native did not commit the infamous slaying of pregnant actress Sharon Tate or any of the other eight murders, a jury in 1972 decided his presence during the deaths of musician Gary Hinman and stagehand Donald "Shorty" Shea warranted life in prison.

    He was convicted of killing Gary Hinman and Shorty Shea. Bruce wasn't there when Gary was murdered. Bobby Beausoliel, Susan Atkins, and Mary Brunner are the ones that killed him. Bruce drove Manson over to Gary's house a day or two earlier and was there (or only in the car according to Bobby) when Manson slashed Gary's ear with a sword. Bruce stabbed Shorty Shea in the shoulder after Tex Watson and Steve Grogan murdered Shorty. Tex Watson, Bill Vance, and Larry Bailey were never charged with Shorty's murder. Out of all the Manson Family killers still in prison he is the only one I don't mind getting out.

    Gov. Jerry Brown will have 120 days to decide whether to sign his parole papers or not.

    None of these creeps should ever see the light of day again. Same goes for the creep that killed RFK.

    Good post.

    I agree but I don't think he would have just stabbed Shorty in the shoulder.
    Why would he be there... but the others were the ones that killed him?

    When Bobby was killed... he likely knew what was going to happen IMO.

    None of the girls, other than Susan, wanted to ever bring up the other killings. Mostly because Charlie liked errrybody to get their hands dirty. There were plenty of John and Jane Does scattered near Spahn Ranch! I have no doubt whatsoever that others were killed and some Mansonites were never even arrested who have bloody hands. Bruce was sort of a tuff for the group. You think he did not kill more?
