Ono: Lennon killer's parole denial 'complicated'
Yoko Ono and her son say a parole board's decision to keep John Lennon's killer behind bars is "complicated" and "sensitive."
Mark David Chapman was denied parole for the seventh time last week. He shot and killed Lennon outside the former Beatle's Manhattan apartment building in 1980.
Ono and Sean Lennon were reluctant to discuss Chapman during an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Sean Lennon called the matter "complicated." He added, "Let's just say that our lives were changed forever by that, so it's a sensitive sort of thing."
Ono said it was especially difficult for Sean "because Sean was so close to John and suddenly John was gone."
The two spoke after a news conference opposing hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.
Chapman can reapply for parole in 2014.
