ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — David Berkowitz, the "Son of Sam" killer who terrorized New York City in the summer of 1977, was denied parole for a second time, officials said Friday.

Berkowitz is serving six consecutive 25-years-to-life sentences. Though he did not request parole, the issue is automatically considered every two years under state law.

"You caused irreparable harm to many victims and society was gripped in fear because of your acts," stated a summary of the hearing released Friday.

Berkowitz, a former postal worker, killed six people and wounded seven others beginning in 1976.
