BUFFALO, N.Y. — John Lennon’s killer will seek his freedom this week for a sixth time.
Mark David Chapman is scheduled to appear before a parole board at Attica Correctional Facility.
Parole officials are expected to release their decision the day after the hearing and a transcript about a week later.
The former maintenance man from Hawaii has been in prison nearly 30 years for gunning down the former Beatle on a Manhattan sidewalk in 1980. He was sentenced to 20 years to life after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
Now 55, Chapman has been denied parole five times.
