A Texas judge has ruled that Los Angeles police are entitled to recordings of conversations between a Manson family member and his attorney.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brenda T. Rhoades granted the request Tuesday, allowing officers to obtain eight audio tapes of talks between Charles "Tex" Watson and attorney Bill Boyd.

Watson is serving a life sentence for his role in the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders. He previously made the tapes available to his co-author for the 1978 book, "Will You Die for Me?"

Now, police want to see whether Watson described any unsolved killings in the conversations.

Boyd died in 2009 and his Texas firm is in bankruptcy.

Rhoades' ruling came despite an objection from Watson's current attorney, who argued Watson didn't waive attorney-client privilege when making the book deal.
