Van Houten, now 68, was 19 when she joined other Manson family members in the murders of supermarket executives Leno LaBianca and Rosemary LaBianca in 1969.

"State officials will begin a 120-day legal review of the panel's finding, and after the process concludes, the decision goes to Brown".

It now falls to California Governor Jerry Brown to decide whether Van Houten will in fact receive parole. But she helped kill grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, on the second night.

In recommending parole in 2016, the Board of Parole Hearings found that Van Houten had been a model prisoner, had taken responsibility for her crimes, and had taken steps to better herself behind bars. Brown rejected release previous year under similar circumstances.

On the night of the attack almost five decades ago, she said she held Rosemary LaBianca down with a pillowcase over her head as others stabbed her dozens of times.

Manson, 82, and other followers involved in the killings are still jailed. After this incident, she was sentenced to death in March 1971 along with Manson and two others, Susan Atkins and Patricia Krenwinkel, and became the youngest woman that was ever sentenced to death in California.

Members of both the Tate and La Bianca families have argued against parole for Van Houten, or for any Manson follower.

Van Houten was the youngest member of the "Manson Family", that terrorized California in the late 1960's.

"I don't let myself off the hook".

However, regardless of that, the families of the Manson Family victims have been strongly opposed to her release.

She's been up for parole 21 times, and on Wednesday it was once again granted by the California Parole Board. She also mentioned how Manson threatened to have her (Share) tortured and killed if she tried to leave.
