FILE - This Jan. 31, 2018 photo, provided by the New York State Department of Corrections, shows Mark David Chapman, the man who killed John Lennon outside his Manhattan apartment in 1980. Chapman said he was seeking glory and deserved the death penalty for the “despicable” act. Chapman made the comments in response to questions last month from a parole board, which denied him parole for an 11th time.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The man who shot and killed John Lennon outside his Manhattan apartment building in 1980 has been denied parole for a 12th time.

The state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision said Monday that Mark David Chapman appeared before a parole board at the end of August. Chapman shot and killed Lennon on the night of Dec. 8, 1980.
