John Lennon’s killer has been denied release from prison in his seventh appearance before a parole board.
Mark Chapman, 57, was denied parole after a hearing yesterday, the New York Department of Corrections said.
Chapman shot Lennon in December 1980 outside the Manhattan apartment building where the former Beatle lived.
He was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
Chapman was transferred in May from the Attica Correctional Facility in western New York to the nearby Wende Correctional Facility.
Both are maximum security. The prison system does not disclose why inmates are transferred.
