The man who killed Beatles star John Lennon has apologised to his widow Yoko Ono - 40 years on.
A transcript seen by the PA news agency shows Mark Chapman was denied parole at a hearing in New York last month.
The 65-year-old also claimed he only shot the singer for 'self-glory', admitting his actions were 'despicable'.
Chapman also believes he should have been given the death penalty, according to the transcript.
Chapman is next eligible for parole in two years.
