Storyline

The quiet, affluent suburb of Delmar, New York, was considered anything but dangerous...until 21-year-old Chris Porco was accused of brutally murdering his father Peter and disfiguring his mother Joan in a savage ax attack, a claim made all the more shocking when the case's lead detective Joe Sullivan believed Joan had identified Chris as her attacker. Weeks after the crime, however, Joan would refute Detective Sullivan's story, while the town of Delmar and many of Chris' former friends and girlfriends would also rally to his defense, despite Sullivan's fierce mission to prove his guilt. Prosecutors believed that beneath Chris' picture-perfect facade was a greedy and cunning sociopath who would stop at nothing to keep his lies hidden. In the end, he was convicted of second-degree murder of his father, but many in the town of Delmar firmly believe that the prosecution rushed to judgment and the jury wrongfully convicted an innocent young man.

Kept me guessing
4 May 2015 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

This was a pretty good Lifetime movie. Well acted by Eric McCormack & Matt Barr with a gripping story that kept me guessing until the very end. Did he do it? The final verdict surprised the hell out of me, not what I was expecting.

Based on real events this follows a college student from the quiet town of Delmar New York who was accused of murdering his fathering and badly disfiguring his mother in a vicious attack with an axe. 21-year-old Chris Porco maintains that he's innocent throughout with many of his friends and girlfriends backing him. Eric McCormack plays Detective Sullivan, on a mission to prove his guilt. 05.13
