Itís the eighth time 59-year-old Mark David Chapman has been denied parole. New York corrections officials announced the decision Friday.
They say a three-member board denied Chapmanís parole after a hearing Wednesday.
Chapman shot Lennon outside the former Beatleís Manhattan apartment building in December 1980. The musician, singer, songwriter and activist was 40.
Chapman pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 1981 and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
