Leslie Van Houten Denied Parole

Former Manson "family" member Leslie Van Houten has gone into detail about her involvement in the 1969 murders she participated in at the order of cult leader Charles Manson.

Speaking during her 20th parole board hearing, Van Houten said she has dramatically changed her life since the crimes.

"I know I did something that is unforgivable, but I can create a world where I make amends," Van Houten, now 63, said.

"I'm trying to be someone who lives a life for healing rather than destruction."
