John Lennon's killer was denied early release for the 11th time

The parole Board rejected for the 11th time a request for the release of Mark Chapman, who shot and killed British musician and co-founder of the Beatles John Lennon in 1980. This was reported on Wednesday by Reuters, citing a representative of the new York prison system.





Chapman, 65, was eligible for parole in 2000 when he served the first 20 years of a life sentence. He will be able to submit the next application no earlier than in two years.

According to Reuters, Chapman's release is opposed by Lennon's 87-year-old widow, Yoko Ono. It is reported that before the meeting, she sent a letter to the members of the Commission confirming her position.

On December 8, 1980, as John Lennon and his wife were returning home, Chapman fired five shots into the musician's back. Lennon bled to death on the way to the hospital. A few hours before his death, the musician left an autograph for Chapman on the record Double Fantasy.

Lennon was cremated, his ashes scattered over Central Park in New York. The court found Chapman sane and sentenced him to life in prison.
