John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman was denied parole for the sixth time in New York recently. Mr. Chapman has served over 30 years for the murder. Yoko Ono urged against Mr. Chapman’s release on fears of safety for her family. Chapman will go up for parole again in 2012. He received 20 to life for his crime. I don’t understand the New York penal code . If Mr. Chapman was convicted for first degree murder in Tennessee , he would have to serve over 51 years before he would be eligible. In 2012 , we will be talking about it again.
