In past parole hearings, the once pudgy killer has claimed to have found Jesus while behind bars.
Chapman has said he targeted Lennon because of his fame and a twisted belief that the rocker was a phony for living an elite lifestyle.
He is kept in protective custody against his will and works as an administrative clerk. He’s allowed out of his cell a minimum of three hours a day.
Chapman also is registered in the prison system’s “family reunion” program, which allows him conjugal visits with his wife, Gloria Hiroko Chapman, who married him 18 months before the murder, and visits with his stepfather. His wife could not be reached for comment.
Chapman in previous parole hearings said he’s willing to pay for his crime in prison “however long it takes, forever.”
He once angered Ono when he said he believed Lennon would have forgiven him.
He also admitted to having eyed other targets, including Johnny Carson and Elizabeth Taylor, now both dead, if he hadn’t been able to get to Lennon.
Chapman said at his 2014 parole hearing that if he’s released there is a minister who has agreed to take him in and give him a job.
He said he learned how to fix wheelchairs while behind bars.
