John Lennon's killer admits shooting Beatles star was 'evil' but he 'wanted fame too much'
 Mark Chapman, 67, killed The Beatles star John Lennon back in 1980 and was sentenced to a prison term of 20 years to life.The murderer has since admitted he “knew it was wrong” to shoot the star but that he had “wanted the fame” too much at the time to walk away.Mark shot the legendary musician as he walked into the archway of his apartment building at The Dakota in New York City on December 8, 1980.Following a murder that shocked the world, Chapman's legal team planned to argue an insanity defense based on the testimony of mental health experts who said that he was in a delusional psychotic state.However, Chapman told his lawyers that he wanted to plead guilty based on what he had decided was the will of God. Since becoming eligible for parole, he has applied for it 12 times but has always been denied.Chapman has since told a parole board he knew it was wrong to kill the Beatle, but that he was seeking fame and had “evil in his heart”. A transcript released by New York officials on Monday under a freedom of information request detailed exactly what he said before the board denied him parole for a 12th time, Sky News reports. During his parole hearing, Chapman said he had a "selfish disregard for human life of global consequence".He also said his decision to kill Lennon was "my big answer to everything. I wasn't going to be a nobody anymore".He continued: "I am not going to blame anything else or anybody else for bringing me there."I knew what I was doing, and I knew it was evil.
