May 07, 1986|United Press International

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The California parole board today denied parole for the eighth time to Charles (Tex) Watson, who as Charles Manson's lieutenant directed the cult slayings of actress Sharon Tate and six other people in 1969.

Watson told the board that if released he would return to his hometown of Denton, Tex., a suburb of Dallas, to work in his family's gasoline station and grocery store. Board Chairman Albert Leddy, who pronounced the board's decision after a short recess, told Watson that his crimes "were committed in a particularly heinous, cruel and atrocious manner."
