John Lennon’s killer denied parole for 7th time

Washington: John Lennon’s assassin Mark David Chapman’s request for release has been denied for the seventh time by the parole board, the New York Department of Corrections has revealed.

57-year-old Chapman had shot the legendary musician in December 1980 outside the Manhattan apartment building, where the former Beatle lived, a news channel has reported.

He had been sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder.

He had been transferred in May from the Attica Correctional Facility to the nearby Wende Correctional Facility, both of which are maximum security prisons.
