California Governor Jerry Brown reversed a decision by the State Board of Paroles, and sent 70-year-old Bruce Davis back to prison.
Davis, although not a member of the Manson Family that murdered Sharon Tate and others, was convicted of murdering a musician and a stuntman with Manson.
“I find the evidence … shows why he currently poses a danger to society if released from prison. Therefore, I reverse the decision to parole Mr. Davis,” the written decision said.
Steve Grogan, also a participant in those murders was released several years ago when he agreed to reveal where the bodies were buried on a remote farm in the San Fernando Valley. He remains the only Manson Family member to be paroled.
Davis claimed he was a bystander and had no part in the actual murders, but in recent years admitted his participation. He was 30 years old at the time he received a life sentence in 1972.
In prison he became a “born-again” Christian and claimed he had changed and was no longer a danger to society.
