LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles district attorney says she is opposing the impending release of Bruce Davis, a former Charles Manson follower who has spent more than 40 years in prison.

District Attorney Jackie Lacey sent a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown last week urging him to reverse a parole panel's decision to grant Davis freedom.

The 70-year-old Davis was convicted with Manson and another man in the killings of a musician and a stuntman. He was not involved in the infamous Sharon Tate murders.

Lacey says Davis still lacks insight and genuine remorse for his crimes.

Monday will be the end of a 120-day review period by the entire parole board. If they uphold Davis' parole recommendation, Brown then has 30 days to review the decision and either approve or reject it.
