John Lennon’s killer is trying for parole again.
Mark David Chapman is due to be interviewed at the Attica Correctional Facility in New York state this week.
It will be the sixth try at freedom for the former maintenance man who has spent nearly 30 years inside. He has been denied parole every two years since becoming eligible in 2000.
Exactly when Chapman will be interviewed will depend on how quickly the parole panel works its way through a lengthy list of inmates.
Chapman was originally scheduled to appear last month, but the hearing was postponed.
He is serving a sentence of 20 years to life for shooting Lennon four times outside the ex-Beatle’s Manhattan apartment building in December 1980.
