The man who killed Kitty Genovese in New York City in 1964 has been denied parole for the 13th time. Her murder has been cited for decades as a textbook example of urban apathy.

Genovese was a Queens bartender. Her killing became notorious after reports neighbors heard her screams late one night but failed to help as she was stabbed to death. That account has been challenged over the years.

Tuesday, the state Division of Parole said no to 73-year-old Winston Moseley's request for parole.

The parole board that interviewed Moseley at Clinton Correctional Facility in northern New York says he remains violent and a danger to the community. He will be eligible for parole again in two years.
