CORONA, Calif. (AP) — A follower of Charles Manson who has been imprisoned longer than any other woman in California is facing a parole hearing on her conviction in the Sharon Tate killings.

Patricia Krenwinkel has maintained a clean prison record in her four decades behind bars, but her chances for release appear slim following the parole officials' rejections in other Manson cases.

The 63-year-old inmate was convicted with Manson and two others in seven 1969 murders which are among the most notorious crimes of the 20th Century.

None of those involved in the Tate-La Bianca murders has ever been given a parole date and one of them, Susan Atkins, died in prison last year after being denied compassionate release when she was terminally ill with cancer.
