Man who shot and killed John Lennon denied parole for 10th time


The man who shot and killed John Lennon in 1980 has been denied parole for the tenth time. 

Mark David Chapman is serving 20 years to life for the murder of the music legend. He’s currently being held at Wende Correctional Facility in Alden. 

According to a press release from the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, a parole board has determined that Chapman’s release would be “incompatible with the welfare and safety of society and would deprecate the serious nature of the crime.”

Chapman’s next parole hearing will be in August 2020.
