ALBANY, N.Y. – 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. Seventy-eight-year-old Winston Moseley 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.
