A New York City man who admitted to a 1964 killing that was seen as a chilling case of urban apathy has been denied parole for the second time in two months.
The state Division of Parole announced the latest decision Friday. Winston Moseley, 78, is serving 20 years to life in prison in the stabbing of bartender Kitty Genovese. He later escaped from prison and held a family hostage.
Genovese's death became infamous after reports that witnesses did nothing to help her. That account was later challenged.
A parole board also interviewed Winston and said no last month. Because of a complexity of the parole system, he was up for review again this month.
Moseley said during his November hearing he was tired of being asked about Genovese's death.
