New York: The parole hearing for John Lennon`s killer has been postponed for a month.

Mark David Chapman was scheduled to be interviewed this week at Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

A spokesman for the Division of Parole now says Chapman was told Tuesday that his interview has been rescheduled for early September.

The parole board says it`s awaiting more information so that it has a complete record. It didn`t specify what.

The 55-year-old Chapman has been denied parole five times and has appeared before the board every two years since 2000.

He`s serving a sentence of 20 years to life for shooting Lennon four times outside the ex-Beatle`s Manhattan apartment building in 1980.
