Parole denied for Zebra killer

One of the men convicted of murder in San Francisco's notorious Zebra killings has been denied parole.

J.C.X. Simon, who was sentenced to life in prison in 1976, was turned down for parole for another five years by the Board of Prison Terms on Thursday.

The killings got their nickname because of the radio channel police used exclusively for the case.

In late 1973 and early 1974, black men affiliated with the Nation of Islam were shooting white people, at random and out in the open. In less than six months, 15 people were killed and seven were injured, including a future mayor of San Francisco.
