— Porco is now 29, but was 20 at the time of the murder. He is now serving 50 years in prison.

The film is set to portray Porco as a “beloved, handsome college student ... who was every girl’s dream in the small town of Delmar, New York.”

Lifetime Network released the first still from the movie on its press website, which depicts Barr (Porco) and McCormick (Detective Sullivan) sitting across from each other at a table, in what appears to be a police station.

The movie's description says prosecutors believed Porco to be "a devious and cunning sociopath" while "many in the town of Delmar firmly believe the jury wrongfully convicted an innocent young man."
