Mark David Chapman was 25 when he shot Lennon dead outside the apartment building on December 8, 1980. And the killer is still trying to get out of his sentence early.
Chapman, 67, appeared before a parole board at the end of August, according to the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
Chapman called his actions ‘despicable’ during his hearing in 2020, and said he would have ‘no complaint whatsoever’ if they chose to leave him in prison for the rest of his life. Yet he asks anyway.
He was denied parole then and he was denied again Monday.
Chapman is serving a 20-years-to-life sentence at Green Haven Correctional Facility, north of New York City, according to online state corrections records.
He is next due to appear before the parole board in February 2024.
