The California group on Wednesday recommended that Cavalier Charles Manson, Leslie Van Houten, be released after serving more than four decades of imprisonment.
After hearing a female prison in China, California, trustees of the Hearing Committee for the third time found that 69-year-old Van Houten was eligible for release.
If her case endures a 150-day revision, she will remain in the hands of New Californian governor Gavina Newsoma. Van Houten twice had recommended conditional release twice, but then Governor Jerry Brown blocked her release.
Van Houten was among the followers of Manson's murderous cult who, in 1969, launched a wealthy merchant named Leno LaBianc and his wife Rosemary. the other in Los Angeles.
Tate's sister attended Wednesday and after that she said she strongly disagreed with the recommendation for conditional release.
"I just have to hope and pray for the governor to make the right decision," and keep Van Houten behind the lattice, said Debra Tate. Office News did not respond promptly to the request for a comment.
Van Houten's lawyer, Rich Pfeiffer, said he was satisfied with the way the commissioners focused on ensuring that he took "full responsibility" for his role in the killings.
"She decided to go with Manson, she decided to listen to her, and she admitted it," Pfeiffer said. He predicted that he would "be much harder" for News to block suspended freedom than Brown.
In his last year's decision, Brown acknowledged Van Houten's youth at the time of the crime, her more than four decades of good behavior as a prisoner and her abuse in the hands of Manson. But he said he was still too many guilty to Manasseon for murder.
At the last hearing, Van Houten described the problematic childhood. She said she was ruined when her parents divorced when she was 14. Shortly thereafter, she said, she began to socialize with her school audience and use drugs. When she was 17, she and her boyfriend fled to San Francisco in Haight-Ashbury District during the City Summer of Love.
She was traveling up and down the coast of California when her acquaintances led to Manson. He was on an abandoned film ranch on the outskirts of Los Angeles where he recruited what he called the "family" to survive what he insisted on a racial war that would trigger a series of accidental, terrible murders.
Van Houten said he joined several members of the group in LaBiancasa's killing, cut off the body of Leno LaBiance and smeared blood on the walls.
No one who participated in the killings of Tate-LaBianca was released from prison.
Manson died in 2017 from natural causes at a hospital in California as he spent life imprisonment.
Earlier this month, the California condemnation commission recommended for the first time Manson's follower Robert Beausoleil to be released. Beausoleil was convicted of murdering Gary Hinman's musician.
