Question of the Day
Manson family killer refused parole
SACRAMENTO | Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has rejected a recommendation to parole a member of the Charles Manson family who was convicted of taking part in killings more than four decades ago.
Bruce Davis is serving life sentences for two 1969 slayings, although he was not involved in the two-day murder spree that killed actress Sharon Tate and six others and made national headlines.
The governor in a letter made public Monday reversed a January decision by the state parole board, saying the murders were “especially heinous.” “I believe his release would pose an unreasonable risk of danger to society at this time,” he wrote.
The board determined that Davis, 67, is ready to be released. While incarcerated, he earned a master’s degree in religion and a doctorate in philosophy of religion, married and fathered a daughter.
Tennis star Capriati survives overdose
Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati was recovering Monday from an accidental overdose of prescribed medication, a family spokeswoman said.
The 34-year-old Ms. Capriati, once ranked No. 1 in a career sidetracked by personal troubles, was in stable condition after being rushed to the hospital Sunday and expected to make a full recovery, spokeswoman Lacey Wickline told the Associated Press.
Ms. Wickline declined to identify the medication and would not say how Ms. Capriati was found or who called emergency services.
Public records show Ms. Capriati owns a condo on Singer Island in Palm Beach County, Fla. Riviera Beach city spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown said a person was transported from Ms. Capriati’s address Sunday morning but could not provide details, citing privacy laws.
