John Lennon’s killer denied parole
for 7th time.
- Mark David Chapman gunned down John Lennon in 1980
- Yoko Ono asked board members to deny his request
The man who killed John Lennon was denied parole for a seventh time Thursday.
Mark David Chapman went before the New York State Board of Parole Wednesday.
He is currently serving a sentence of 20 years-to-life for a conviction of second-degree murder for gunning down the famous Beatles musician on December 8, 1980.
The 57-year-old was last considered for parole in 2010 but was denied because his “discretionary release remains inappropriate at this time and incompatible with the welfare of the community,” according to the parole board.
He was also denied parole in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008.
Chapman’s next scheduled appearance before the board will be in August 2014.
CNN reports that Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, reiterated her position to the board that his parole be denied before his latest hearing.
‘Bloody Good Job’.
