Robert F. Kennedy's killer, Sirhan Sirhan, has been granted parole after two of RFK's son said they support his release.

The New York senator and brother of President John F. Kennedy was a Democratic presidential candidate when he was gunned down on June 6, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Although the decision is a major victory for the 77-year-old prisoner, it does not guarantee his release.

The ruling by the two-person panel, at Sirhan's 16th parole hearing, will be reviewed over the next 90 days by the California Parole Board's staff.

Douglas Kennedy, who was a toddler when his father was gunned down in 1968, said he was moved to tears by Sirhan's remorse and he should be released if he's not a threat to others.
