Charles Manson has been hospitalized again outside the Corcoran State Prison in California where he is serving a life sentence, but authorities won’t release the seriousness of his condition or details of his treatment. As before, there are headlines saying he is near death.

The Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday that Vicky Waters, a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, would say little more than he was alive. Waters cited federal and state medical privacy laws that prevented her from giving out additional information.

Kern County Sheriff Lt. Bill Smallwood confirmed that Manson, 83, was taken to a local hospital in the Bakersfield area, the Times said.

TMZ reported on Wednesday that Manson was transferred to the Bakersfield hospital three days earlier and has been surrounded by five uniformed officers while being taken to various treatments.

TMZ cited one source as saying that Manson's health had been declining and "it's just a matter of time."

TMZ said Manson was hospitalized in January for reported severe intestinal bleeding and needed surgery then to repair a lesion, but doctors determined that Manson was too weak for surgery and he was sent back to the prison.

Manson is serving a life sentence for a two-night killing spree in 1969 carried out by his followers, the Bakersfield Californian reported. The spree included killing pregnant actress Sharon Tate, who was married to director Roman Polanski, and four others at Tate's home on Aug. 9, 1969, the Californian said.

The Times said Manson's followers killed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca at the couple's home the following night. Prosecutors charged that Manson and his followers were attempting to start a race war he called "Helter Skelter," taken from the Beatles song of the same name, the Times said.

Manson was originally sentenced to death, but a 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state's death penalty law at the time unconstitutional, and his sentenced was altered to life in prison with the possibility of parole, the Times said.

While in prison, Manson has been cited for assault, repeated possession of a weapon, threatening staff, and possessing a cellphone, the Times said.
