SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — A California board has approved parole for former Charles Manson follower Bruce Davis, but Gov. Jerry Brown — who vetoed parole for Davis just last year — can stop his release.

The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says parole was granted for the 71-year-old Davis after a hearing Wednesday at the California Men's Colony.

Davis has been in prison since 1972 for the killings of two men. He was granted parole in 2012, but Brown rejected it last March, saying he wanted Davis to reveal more details about the killings.

Brown spokesman Jim Evans said in an email Wednesday that he could not comment beyond the parole board's statement.

The finding is subject to a four-month board review, then the governor has 30 days to act.

If Governor Brown stops his parole again, that will be two good things he has done as governor.

This guy needs to stay in prison until his life ends. The horrific nature of the crimes committed by him and the rest of his manson gang should be enough to deny this sub-human behind those bars and never be able to breath free people air again.
