The man, who shot and killed John Lennon outside his Manhattan apartment in 1980, has had his request for parole denied an 11th time.
65-year-old Mark David Chapman is serving a 20-years-to-life sentence at Wende Correctional Facility, east of Buffalo.
Chapman shot and killed the 40-year-old former Beatle the night of December 8, 1980, only hours after Lennon had autographed an album for him.
Chapman told a parole board in 2018 he was ”too far in.”
”I do remember having the thought of, ‘Hey, you have got the album now. Look at this, he signed it, just go home.’ but there was no way I was just going to go home.”
Chapman’s previously said he feels ”more and more shame” every year.
His next parole hearing is scheduled for August 2022.
