ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — 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.

Winston also was denied parole last month. Because of a parole system complexity, he was up for review again this month.

Moseley told the latest parole board he attacked Genovese in "anger and grief" after a friend's death, as he's mentioned before.
