John Lennon's killer up for parole

Alden - Officials say John Lennon's killer, who is up for parole for the seventh time, could have a parole hearing as early as Tuesday.

New York Department of Corrections spokesperson Linda Foglia says Mark David Chapman is scheduled to be interviewed by members of the parole board this week. She says they could make a decision by Thursday or Friday.

Chapman shot Lennon in December 1980 outside the Manhattan apartment building where the former Beatle lived. He was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Chapman was transferred in May from the Attica Correctional Facility in western New York to the nearby Wende Correctional Facility. Both are maximum security. The prison system doesn't disclose why inmates are transferred.

Chapman was denied parole for the sixth time in September 2010.
