Best news Ive seen all week

NEW YORK (AFP) - The New York State Board of Parole denied parole to Mark David Chapman, convicted of murdering former Beatle John Lennon in October 1980, officials said in a statement.

Chapman shot Lennon October 8, 1980, outside the singer's New York apartment. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1981 for the shooting.

"Following a personal interview, a review of your records, and deliberation, your release to parole supervision at this time is denied," the Board said in a statement, citing the "extreme malicious intent" exhibited when Chapman fired on Lennon "multiple times."

Tuesday was the third time Chapman, 49, applied for parole since becoming eligible in 2000. In both previous cases, the board denied his request.

Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono (news), and fans of the British superstar asked the board to deny Chapman's request for release.

"Your course of conduct over a lengthy period of time shows a clear lack of respect for life and subjected the wife of the victim to monumental suffering by her witnessing the crime," the board added.

"During the interview your statements for motivation acknowledges the attention you felt this murder would generate. Although proven true, such rationale is bizarre and morally corrupt."

To release Chapman on parole "would significantly undermine respect for the law," the board concluded.

How he could even be considered for parole is astonishing.
