A Californian parole board has voted to grant prison release to the murderer of Democratic 1968 presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy (RFK).

Sirhan Sirhan served 53 years in jail for shooting the frontrunner after a speech at a Los Angeles hotel, arguably altering the course of history.

The vote, establishing that he is not a public threat, does not necessarily guarantee he will walk free, BBC reported.

The decision now falls to Californian Governor Gavin Newsom.

The Democrat is currently in the throes of an election campaign.
