Susan Atkins and other members of Charles Manson's cult were convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate and six other people during a bloody rampage in Los Angeles over two nights in 1969. Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, was 8 1/2 months pregnant when she was killed at her hilltop home in Benedict Canyon. Atkins was also convicted of the earlier killing of music teacher Gary Hinman. Associated Press
