On the Radar: Lennon killer up for parole, trapped miners

Mark David Chapman, left, faces a parole hearing in the 1980 murder of John Lennon.

Chapman up for parole for sixth time - Mark David Chapman, convicted killer of music icon John Lennon, is up for parole for the sixth time and may be questioned this week.

A parole hearing for Chapman originally scheduled for August was postponed until this month when the New York parole board begins its meeting Tuesday. Chapman's latest quest for freedom comes months short of the 30th anniversary of the death of the former member of the Beatles.

Trapped Chilean miners - NASA teams usually use their knowledge to help astronauts many miles above the Earth's surface. But Tuesday, a group of experts from the U.S. space agency will share their advice for the 33 miners who have been trapped 2,300 feet underground in Chile since August 5.

Tropical Storm Hermine - Tropical Storm Hermine pummeled southern Texas on Tuesday morning, packing torrential rains and damaging winds and bringing along the possibility of tornadoes.

As of 8 a.m. ET, the center of Hermine was about 35 miles southwest of Mathis, Texas, and about 50 miles west of Corpus Christi, Texas, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm's maximum sustained winds were about 45 mph with higher gusts, and the storm was moving north-northwest at near 17 mph. Additional weakening is forecast, and Hermine is expected to become a tropical depression later Tuesday.

    Chapman slew a dreamer which, with many, weighs heavy.

    Let him rot. Put him in general population. I imagine he is in a special "nut" pen. One of these prisons that is run for mental cases. Id rather see "charlie" get out than him.
