John Lennon's killer was denied parole for the sixth time

Gina DiFalco

Mark David Chapman, the man charged with the murder of legend John Lennon, was denied parole for the sixth time on Tuesday, New York Daily News reports.

Chapman was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison after shooting the former Beatle four times on December 8, 1980.

To this date, he has served nearly 30 years of his sentence. After meeting with a three-member Parole Panel located at the Attica Correctional Facility by video conferencing, Chapman was denied his right to parole once again.

While he was first eligible for parole in 2000, he will be eligible again in 2 years after his most recent denial.

Yoko Ono, Lennon’s widow, had expressed her desire to the Parole Board that she would like to see Chapman kept locked up in jail.

The late Beatle would have turned 70 next month had he not been shot by Chapman after a late recording session across from his Central Park apartment.
