Lennon killer up for parole

Mark David Chapman, the man currently serving his 24th year in prison for the murder of John Lennon on 8 December 1980, is eligible for parole. Again. Chapman has been denied parole on two prior occasions, in 2000 and 2002 respectively.

Chapman has received numerous death threats from Lennon worshippers, and has been told that he will be killed the second he steps out of prison.

The Smoking Gun has a rather interesting piece, featuring a letter written by Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, to the parole board, pleading with them to refuse Chapman's parole. Makes for topical and interesting reading, I think.

Yoko Ono was always a strange bird, wasn't she? Not really my cup of tea.
