Bruce DavisA parole hearing for former Charles Manson follower Bruce Davis was postponed Wednesday after Davis reported feeling ill, the  L.A. County district attorney’s office said.

Prosecutors say no new date for the hearing was immediately set.

Davis, 69, has been imprisoned for 40 years in connection with the 1969 killings of musician Gary Hinman and ranch hand Donald "Shorty" Shea.

In 2010, Davis was recommended for parole, but his release was later blocked by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The parole hearing planned for Wednesday would have been Davis’ 27th.
