The California Parole Board recommended parole for Bruce Davis, 69, at his 27th parole hearing, finding that during his 40 years in prison he had a record of good behavior and had earned a master’s degree in philosophy and religion through a correspondence course.

Davis was convicted alongside Manson for the 1969 killings of Gary Hinman, a musician, and Donald Shea, a stuntman who lived with the Manson crew who was nicknamed “Shorty.” Davis is serving two life sentences. His crimes were unrelated to the murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others.
