It is the eighth time 59-year-old Mark David Chapman has been denied parole.

New York corrections officials said a three-member board denied Chapman's parole after a hearing on Wednesday.

Chapman shot Lennon outside the former Beatle's Manhattan apartment building in December 1980. The musician, singer, songwriter and activist was 40.

Chapman pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 1981 and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
