John Lennon's killer denied parole for 7th time

  • Mark David Chapman, who shot and killed former Beatle John Lennon 32 years ago, has been denied parole for a seventh time, according to New York state's Department of Corrections.

    Chapman, 57, is currently serving a prison sentence of 20 years to life at the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison in Alden, New York, for shooting Lennon four times outside the musician's New York City apartment building on December 8, 1980. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

    He has had parole meetings every two years since 2000 and has been turned down each time.
