Prisoner Who Shot, Killed John Lennon Denied Parole for the 12th Time

Mark David Chapman, the man who shot and killed John Lennon in New York’s Upper West Side over 40 years ago, was denied parole for the 12th time.

The 67-year-old prisoner, serving a 20-years-to-life sentence at Green Haven Correctional Facility in New York, was once again denied parole in August. The parole board has decided to keep Chapman behind bars every two years since he was first eligible for parole in 2000.

Additional details about Chapman’s parole case, including the transcript, have yet to be made available through the New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
