Mark David Chapman (born May 10, 1955) is an American prison inmate who murdered John Lennon outside the Dakota apartment building in Manhattan in New York City on December 8, 1980. Chapman fired four times at Lennon, hitting him three times in the back and once in his left shoulder. Chapman later remained at the crime scene and began reading J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye until the police arrived and arrested him. He repeatedly said that the novel was his statement.
Chapman's legal team intended to mount an insanity defense based on expert testimony that he was in a delusional psychotic state at the time of the killing. As the trial approached, Chapman instructed his lawyers that he wanted to plead guilty, based on what he had decided was the will of God. The judge allowed the plea change without further psychiatric assessment after Chapman denied hearing voices, and sentenced him to a prison term of 20 years to life with a stipulation that mental health treatment be provided. Chapman has remained in prison since, having been denied parole nine times amidst campaigns against his release after becoming eligible in 2000.
