killer Peter Du­pas is re­turn­ing to court in a bid to force one of the Chan­nel 7 pro­grams off air. The 59-year-old claims sev­eral scenes from the se­ries Killing Time would be in con­tempt of court if he wins an ap­peal for one of his three murder con­vic­tions. Two years ago, Du­pas was jailed for life with no pa­role for the 1997 stab­bing murder of Mersina Hal­vagis near her grand­mother’s grave. An ap­peal of the murder con­vic­tion was heard this year, but a de­ci­sion on or­der­ing a po­ten­tial re­trial has not yet been an­nounced by the Court of Ap­peal. Killing Time (Sun­day, 9.30pm, Seven, Prime7) fo­cuses on the life of for­mer Mel­bourne de­fence lawyer An­drew Fraser, who served jail time for drug of­fences. David Wen­ham (pic­tured) plays Fraser.
