Bruce Davis, a member of murder-cult leader Charles Manson's "family," was denied parole for the seventh time by a three-member state parole board at the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo. Davis, 44, denied allegations that he was part of a satanic cult at the prison chapel, while acknowledging that he and his one-time murder-partner, Charles (Tex) Watson, were fired from their jobs as ministers in the prison's Protestant chapel after an investigation by the Department of Corrections. He also admitted that Watson had assisted him in the murder of ranch hand Donald (Shorty) Shea, whom Manson suspected of being a police informer.
