Wisconsin judge denies new trial for ‘Making a Murderer’ convict

CHICAGO (Reuters) – A Wisconsin judge on Tuesday denied a bid for a new trial by Steven Avery, who is serving life sentence for a 2005 slaying featured in the popular Netflix documentary “Making a Murderer.”

Sheboygan County Judge Angela Sutkiewicz ruled Avery had not met the legal standard to receive a new trial, according to a copy of the decision posted online by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

“Given the totality of evidence submitted at trial and the ambiguous conclusions stated in the experts’ reports, it cannot be said that a reasonable probability exists that a different result would be reached at a new trial based on these reports,” Sutkiewicz wrote in the ruling.

Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s attorney, who argued his conviction was based on planted evidence and false testimony, said in a statement Tuesday she would seek to vacate the judge’s order to allow her to finish further scientific

SUNBURY — The man who police have identified as a suspect in a 30-year-old homicide case denies killing his ex-girlfriend, Barbara E. Miller.

“I’m dying to give my side,” Joseph Walter “Mike” Egan said Wednesday. But his lawyer advised him to remain quiet at this time, he said.

A search warrant affidavit obtained by Sunbury Police Chef Timothy S. Miller to search a duplex in Milton for Barbara Miller’s remains identifies Egan as the lead suspect in her 1989 disappearance.

He is a former Sunbury police officer who served jail time for extortion.

A five-day police search of the basement of the duplex in the 700 block of North Front Street ended Tuesday and Egan said he hopes something was found that would clear him as

‘Making a Murderer’ Investigator Denies Avery’s Claim Authorities Planted Evidence in Case

An investigator from the “Making a Murderer” case has come forward for the first time since Netflix aired its controversial docu-series that quickly consumed the nation.

In his first-ever television interview, co-lead investigator Tom Fassbender responds to claims police coerced then-teen Brendan Dassey into a false confession and planted evidence on his uncle Steven Avery.

“I never absolutely saw that,” he told NBC’s “Dateline.” “Never, never saw that from anyone in Manitowoc County.”

Fassbender, who interviewed Dassey at the time of the investigation, was featured in the docu-series but hadn’t spoken on camera about the case – until now.

“Finally realized that someone needed to bring forward the truth,” he said. “It’s easy to armchair quarterback.”

The comments are part of a new “Dateline” episode, which airs at 9 p.m. CT Friday.

The episode features commentary from several key players in the case, which continues to play out in court more than
