Convicted ax murderer, Chris Porco loses appeal

Posted:

Chris Porco, the convicted ax murderer from Delmar, lost another appeal.

Porco was convicted of murdering his father in 2006, and nearly killing his mother.

Porco initially won a case in the state supreme court to delay the release of the movie called "Romeo Killer".

His lawyers argued the use of Porco's name in the semi-fictional drama violated the civil rights law.

Another judge later lifted the delay, and an appeals court upheld that judge's decision.

Porco is serving 46 years to life in prison.
