New York corrections officials say John Lennon's killer has been denied release from prison in his seventh appearance before a parole board.

The state Department of Corrections says 57-year-old Mark David Chapman was denied parole by a three-member board after a hearing Wednesday.

The transcript of his latest hearing wasn't immediately released.
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.
