Killer in infamous Genovese denied parole, again

December 20, 2013

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A 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 stabbing of bartender Kitty Genovese became infamous after reports that witnesses did nothing to help her. That account was later challenged.

New York state’s Division of Parole announced the latest decision Friday. Seventy-eight-year-old Winston Moseley is serving 20 years to life in prison in the Genovese killing. He later escaped from prison and held a family hostage.

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.
