The 11th appeal of McChrystal Chapman, who shot and killed The Beatles member John Lennon, has been rejected. Chapman has been jailed since 1980 for shooting and killing John Lennon at the Dakota Gate. An 11th appeal to be released from Chapman Prison was rejected in court on Wednesday.
Chapman is from New York State. He is being held at the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo. He has been in prison for 40 years for murder. Previously, John Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono, defended Chapman’s release. If Chapman is released, it will be dangerous for him and his two children. Did Yoko write the petition this year? It is not clear whether he wrote it or not. The appeals board in 2018 said that if Chapman was released from prison, he would be “insecure” and that Lennon could be killed by someone seeking revenge.
Chapman, now 65, was just 25 years old when he killed John Lennon on December 8, 1980. After pleading guilty to the murder of John Lennon, he told the court that John Lennon was very famous. He was killed because he was too good. Chapman went to the Dakota residence in the middle of the night on the day of John Lennon’s assassination and asked Lennon to sign for the album.
Chapman was still there when Lennon and his wife entered the apartment around 10:30 p.m. At that time, Lennon’s back, He was shot four times in the shoulder. Lennon died an hour after arriving at the hospital. He was flipping through the pages of Jedi Slinger’s book The Catcher in the Rye as police raided Chapman. The ruling on the appeal is set to expire in 2022.
