Lennon’s killer denied parole for eighth time
Beatles legend John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman (in pic) has been denied parole for the eighth time. The New York State Parole Board came to the decision after a hearing with Chapman, 59, last Wednesday. They determined they believed Chapman would again break the law if he were released, according to New York Times.

‘This victim had displayed kindness to you earlier in the day. And your actions have devastated a family and those who loved the victim,’ the written statement added. The board concluded that releasing Chapman would be ‘incompatible with the welfare of society.’ Chapman shot and killed Lennon outside his apartment house in Central Park West on December 8, 1980. He hit him with four out of a total five shots.

In 1981, Chapman was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. In his 2012 hearing Chapman described how Lennon had agreed to autograph an album cover for him six hours before his murder.
