Mark Chapman up for parole for seventh time

August 18, 2012 - New York

Mark David Chapman, who is convicted of killing legendary Beetle singer John Lennon is up for parole for the seventh time. He may be questioned as early as Tuesday. Lennon was gunned down by Chapman outside his Manhattan apartment on December 8, 1980.

All his earlier attempts for parole were denied. He last appeared for parole hearing in 2010 and was denied because of the reasons that his release at that time was incompatible with the welfare of the community. He was denied parole in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 as well.

Chapman is serving a sentence of 20 years to life in prison for killing the legendary singer. He is being held at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York and is in protective custody in single-person cell. Chapman is allowed out three hours per day.
