Porco's appeal for new trial denied
ALBANY - Convicted murderer Christopher Porco has lost his latest attempt to get out of prison.
Porco was convicted of murdering his father and attempted murder of his mother in an attack in the family's home in Bethlehem back in 2004.
Porco's latest claim was that he was the victim of an ineffective defense team.
The appellate court denied the appeal.
The high profile case made headlines and his trial was the subject of a Lifetime made for TV movie.
