Mark David Chapman, John Lennon’s killer is still not fit for parole

The officials decided that Mark David Chapman, the man who shot and killed John Lennon in 1980 will remain behind bars for at least another couple of years.

The New York State Division of Parole informed 55-year-old Chapman that they had concerns “about the disregard [he] displayed for the norms of our society and the sanctity of human life.”

A rep for Yoko Ono said she is “very pleased with the result”.

Chapman, who gunned down the “Beatles” icon outside Lennon’s NYC apartment 30 years ago, won’t have another shot at freedom until August 2012 – when he will become eligible for another parole review.
