NEW YORK (AP) — The admitted killer of bartender Kitty Genovese says he's tired of being asked about the 1964 stabbing that was held up as a horror story of urban apathy.
A transcript of Winston Moseley's recent parole hearing was released Friday. In it, the 78-year-old apologizes for his crimes and complains about getting continued interview requests.
He says he'd "just prefer to die and be done with this than keep going over this year after year after year."
Genovese's death became infamous after reports that witnesses did nothing to help her. That account has since been challenged.
Moseley was denied parole — for a 16th time — in a decision released last week.
It said he "displayed no insight" into his crimes. They also include a 1968 prison escape and hostage-taking.
