Freedom bid of Charles Manson's 'harem' of jailed female followers





After the release of Ronnie Biggs on compassionate grounds, the notorious female followers of Charles Manson could take a similar path out of prison.

Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten were all sentenced to death for their roles in the carnage that claimed the lives of actress Sharon Tate, the heavily pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski, and six others in Los Angeles on the nights of August 8 and 9, 1969. The penalties were commuted to life and they are preparing fresh requests for parole.
