The New York police have confirmed that John Lennon's killer, Mark David Chapman, has been denied his parole for the sixth time since being sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for killing the music icon.
The parole board, which was made up of three members, told him they had concern "about the disregard you displayed for the norms of our society and the sanctity of human life." This was said in a video interview with Chapman. They also stated that his "discretionary release remains inappropriate at this time and incompatible with the welfare of the community."
Chapman has been denied parole every two years since 2000, as his release comes up for review. He does receive visits from his wife, where he is allowed up to 44 hours at a time with family members.
Chapman is up for parole in August of 2012 again.
