John Lennon's killer will remain in New
York's Attica Correctional Facility for at least two more years.

Today, 53-year-old Mark David Chapman was denied parole for a
fifth time.

The parole board says that while Chapman has had a clean
disciplinary record since 1994, he remains a threat to the public.
Board members say he told them at the hearing that he planned and
conducted Lennon's killing "with an essentially clear mind."

Chapman has been in prison for 27 years since pleading guilty to
the murder, which he said he committed to gain attention.

The former maintenance man from Hawaii fired five shots outside
Lennon's apartment building on December 8th, 1980, hitting Lennon
four times, in front of his wife, Yoko Ono, and others.
