Charles Manson supporter Patricia Krenwinkel has been recommended for parole by a California panel

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A California parole board on Thursday recommended the release of Patricia Krenwinkel for the first time, more than five decades after she and other supporters of cult leader Charles Manson terrorized the state and wrote them on a wall “Helter Skelter” in the blood of a their victims.

Krenwinkel helped kill pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four other people in a home in Benedict Canyon in August 1969.

She used a victim’s blood to write “Helter Skelter” on a wall.

The next night, she helped kill grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary at their Los Feliz home.

New laws since Krenwinkel was last denied parole in 2017 have required the parole board to say she committed the murders at a young age and is now a 74-year-old prisoner.

The parole recommendation will be reviewed by the legal department of the state parole board before being sent to Gov. Gavin Newsom for a decision, likely within five months. He had previously rejected parole recommendations for other supporters of Manson, who died in prison in 2017.

Krenwinkel became the state’s longest-serving female inmate when her Manson supporter, Susan Atkins, died in prison from cancer in 2009. Krenwinkel’s attorney, Keith Wattley, said he understood that she was the longest-serving woman in the United States.
