ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York corrections officials have released a new mug shot of Mark David Chapman as the man who killed John Lennon is up for parole for a 10th time.
The 63-year-old Chapman was scheduled to go before New York's parole board this week. A decision is expected within two weeks of the hearing.
Chapman is serving 20-years-to-life in the Wende (WEHN'-dee) Correctional Facility in western New York. He shot and killed the former Beatle outside his Manhattan apartment on Dec. 8, 1980.
The state Board of Parole last denied parole to Chapman two years ago.
The latest mug shot was taken on Jan. 31, 2018.
