Court rules Lifetime can air movie based on Capital Region murder

ALBANY -- The State Appellate Court lifted an injunction order on Lifetime that prevented the media company from re-airing a movie based on the Chris Porco trial.

The made-for-TV movie "Romeo Killer: The Christopher Porco Story" is based on the murder of his father and the attempted murder of his mother. Proco tried to keep it from being broadcast, saying it violated his civil rights, but the court ruled the movie is protected under free speech.

Proco was a college student in November 2004 at the time of the attack in his parents' Delmar home. A jury found him guilty of the the crime in 2006. He was sentenced to 50 years to life behind bars.
