California (ChattahBox) – Leslie Van Houten, one of the followers of Charles Manson, is set to go before a parole board this afternoon, to discuss her chances of release for the grisly Helter-Skelter murders in 1969, CNN reports.

Police believe that Houten held down Rosemary LaBianca during the attack, while another member of Manson’s notorious Family stabbed her.

At the time, others were killing Rosemary’s husband, Leno.

She has been in prison since her conviction of first degree murder in 1978, and it is doubtful she will be released, given the nature of the crimes, and her direct participation in the murders.

Charles Manson was the leader of a small cult of followers in California in the 1960′s. Lost in drug and insanity fueled paranoia, he convinced his flock that racial tensions were building, and that secret messages speaking of a race war had been hidden in the Beatles’ White Album.

Their plan was to start that race war by slaughtering the well known California elite, and making it look to be racially motivated. In all, they claimed 11 victims, 12, if you count the unborn son of Sharon Tate, who she was eight months pregnant with at the time of her death.
