John Lennon’s killer denied parole for the eleventh time

The man who shot and killed John Lennon in 1980 was denied parole for the 11th time.

Mark David Chapman, 65, is serving a 20 years-to-life prison sentence for shooting and killing John Lennon, one of the Beatles and a solo artist in his own right.

The 65-year-old – who shot the Beatles legend outside his Manhattan apartment in December 1980 – is now set to spend at least another two years behind bars for the murder, having lost his latest bid for freedom.

A spokesperson for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision told CNN that Chapman had his 11th hearing on August 19 before the Board of Parole.

Chapman previously confessed to feeling “more and more” shame every year about killing the 40-year-old former Beatle.
