(AP) A New York state appeals court has lifted the Lifetime television network's prohibition from airing a movie this weekend on a man who killed his father and maimed his mother with an ax.


Lifetime on Thursday said it will air its original movie "Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story" on Saturday as originally planned. It stars "Will & Grace" star Eric McCormack as an investigator.


Porco sought to stop the movie, saying Lifetime needed permission to use his name because the movie represents a fictionalized account of the 2004 crime.


A New York judge on Wednesday had temporarily banned Lifetime from showing the movie based on the grisly attack in upstate New York.


But the Appellate Division of state Supreme Court in a ruling on Thursday allowed the airing.
