John Lennon’s Killer Denied Parole For 11th Time
JOHN LENNON'S KILLER DENIED PAROLE FOR THE 11TH TIME
(CNN) – The man who shot and killed John Lennon has been denied parole once again.
65-year-old Mark David Chapman is serving a 20 years-to-life in prison sentence for shooting and killing The Beatles member nearly 40 years ago.
A spokesperson for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision said Chapman had his 11th parole hearing earlier this month.
The board of parole did not grant his release.
No details were given as to why not.
The spokesperson said it will be at least two more years before Chapman can have another hearing.
Chapman confessed to shooting and killing Lennon, after waiting outside Lennon’s Manhattan apartment building on December 8th, 1980.
