61 year-old Susan Atkins, Charles Manson devotee and convicted mass-murderer, was denied release from prison where she is serving a life-sentence for her role in the Tate/LaBianca murders 40 years ago.

Atkins is suffering from cancer, paralysis, and last year she had a leg amputated. She was requesting a compassionate release so that she could die outside of prison. She appeared at the hearing in a gurney, bloated and weak.

“The one-time member of the Manson Family was wheeled in to the hearing room on a gurney dressed in a hospital-style gown, her face bloated and her head covered by a purple and pink knitted cap. The cross she once carved into her forehead as a sign of loyalty to Manson was no longer visible.”

Watch the video of her being coached by husband James Whitehouse in reciting the 23rd Psalm. It’s creepy.
