NEW YORK – Mark David Chapman, the man who murdered John Lennon, has not been granted parole and will have to serve two more years until his next parole hearing.
This is Chapman’s seventh denied parole hearing since he’s been imprisoned in 1981 for the shooting death of ex-Beatles John Lennon.
Chapman was sentenced to serve at least 20 years behind bars without parole. After he served that time he would be eligible for parole every two years.
Since 2000, the first year Chapman qualified for a parole hearing, Mark David Chapman has had a revue hearing every two years but has been denied release from prison every single time.
Authorities refused to grant Chapman freedom based on doing so would put the honor of both the law and the lost of a human life into questioning.
Mark David Chapman will be up for parole again in 2014 at the age of 59.
Chapman shot John Lennon to death on December 8th 1980 in front of his home, The Dakota Apartments in New York.
