“I Have No Mercy On You”

Susan Atkins was convicted of first degree murder for the deaths of six people: Gary Hinman, Stephen Parent, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski and Sharon Tate. Susan was sentenced to death in the gas chamber in 1971, but that sentence was overturned a year later when the California Supreme Court (temporarily) abolished the death penalty. Atkins, along with her codefendants, then had her sentence changed to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
