These composite photos provided by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation show Sirhan Sirhan from left, in Oct. 29, 2009, Sept. 20, 2012, and Nov. 22, 2013. For nearly 50 years, Sirhan has been consistent: He says he doesn't remember fatally shooting Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in a crowded kitchen pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. The Jerusalem native, now 71, has given no inkling that he will change his story at his 15th parole hearing set for Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016, in San Diego. He is serving a life sentence that was commuted from death when the California Supreme Court briefly outlawed capital punishment in 1972.

Kennedy, after hearing Wednesday from another person who was shot that night and called for Sirhan's release.
