New York - John Lennon's killer has been transferred to another maximum security state prison in New York state.

The Buffalo News reports that 57-year-old Mark David Chapman was transferred on Tuesday from Attica Correctional Facility to the nearby Wende Correctional Facility.

A spokesperson for the state prison system says the agency doesn't disclose why inmates are transferred.

Chapman shot Lennon in December 1980 outside the Manhattan apartment building where the former Beatle lived.

Chapman pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life in prison.

He was denied parole for the sixth time in September 2010. He's eligible again for parole in August.
