A convicted Capital Region axe murderer, whose case gained national attention, has lost a court battle over a Lifetime TV movie about his crime.

This was first reported by the Times Union.

Chris Porco's lawsuit claimed the 2013 movie misrepresented his life - and that it violated his civil rights - since Lifetime profited off it.

Lifetime argued that Porco's rights were not violated, and they always presented the movie as entertainment that was only based on a true story.

Porco's crime happened back in 2004.

He killed his father and injured his mother in their Delmar home.

He is currently serving a 46-year jail sentence.
