Lennon’s Killer Denied Parole

The man who killed music legend John Lennon won’t be released on parole. The New York Department of Corrections said Thursday that Mark David Chapman was denied an early release by a three-member board that voted unanimously to keep him incarcerated. Chapman shot Lennon four times on Dec. 8, 1980, outside the musician’s apartment building in New York City. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. Chapman will be eligible to apply for parole again in two years.
