A parole board on Wednesday rejected Manson family member Leslie Van Houten's 19th attempt to win freedom.
The board also decided she could not seek parole again for five years.
Van Houten, 63, was convicted of murder and conspiracy in the 1969 killings of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca in their home in Los Feliz. She has repeatedly been denied bids for parole over the last four decades.
“Given the brutality of the murders of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca and Van Houten’s willing and active participation in this evil, pre-planned and violent crime, we are pleased with the parole board’s decision to continue to hold Van Houten accountable for her heinous actions,' L.A. County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said in a statement.
The hearing took place at the California Institution for Women in Chino. According to KABC-TV, Los Angeles County prosecutors and relatives of the victims spoke out against her release.
Van Houten, a former homecoming princess from Monrovia, has been described by supporters as the least culpable member of the so-called Manson family. She did not take part in the Aug. 9, 1969, killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four others at Tate's rented Benedict Canyon home.
