Manson is now serving nine consecutive life sentences for masterminding the gruesome Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969.

Manson is housed at Corcoran State Prison in the San Joaquin Valley.

Charles Manson, the charismatic cult leader whose followers committed heinous murders that shocked the nation nearly a half century ago, has been hospitalized, the Los Angeles Times and TMZ reported Wednesday.

Notorious former cult leader Charles Manson has been removed from prison and hospitalised, reports have said.

Vicky Waters, a spokeswoman with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said the department would only say that Manson was still living but could not provide any further details.

State and local officials were not immediately available for comment to Reuters.

Manson, who was serving a life term for orchestrating one of the most notorious crimes in U.S. history, had been imprisoned for more than 45 years at California State Prison, Corcoran.

Manson was convicted of orchestrating the 1969 murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others by his followers in Southern California. It was the 21st time that Van Houten, 68, has appeared before a parole board, and the second time that commissioners found her suitable for release.

Authorities confirmed Wednesday that mass murderer Charles Manson is back in a Bakersfield hospital, though the severity of his condition is unclear.
