Stephen Avery’s ‘Making A Murderer’ Lawyer Accuses The State Of ‘Hiding Behind Legal Technicalities’

Netflix

The appeal of Making A Murderer subject Steven Avery suffered a serious setback earlier this week when a Wisconsin judge denied his request for a new trial. But now his lawyer Kathleen Zellner is firing back with a motion to vacate the decision, stating she had a deal with the Attorney General’s office to test more evidence and amend her appeal before a ruling was made.

“The basis for the order to vacate will be that an agreement was reached between Mr. Avery’s attorneys and the Wisconsin Attorney General on September 18, 2017, to conduct further testing and allow Mr. Avery to amend his petition with new scientific test results and additional witness affidavits,” Zellner wrote in a press release. “With the addition of these new scientific test results and new evidence, Mr. Avery’s attorneys remain confident that his conviction

‘Making A Murderer’ Attorney Pushes For Access To Halbach’s RAV4

Three days after Steven Avery’s post-conviction lawyer sustained a major setback in her quest to prove her client’s innocence, Kathleen Zellner filed a motion asking Sheboygan judge Angela Sutkiewicz to grant Zellner permission to conduct a series of extensive forensic tests upon the Toyota RAV4 of murder victim Teresa Halbach. Zellner filed her motion Friday asking the court to vacate Tuesday’s surprise ruling that rejected Avery’s bid for a new trial, a ruling that wasn’t anticipated for many more months. Avery is the convicted killer from Wisconsin who gained world-wide attention after the Netflix documentary “Making a Murderer.”

‘Making a Murderer’ defendant Avery asks to vacate order

A Wisconsin man convicted in a homicide featured on the “Making a Murderer” documentary has asked a judge to toss out her ruling that he doesn’t deserve a new trial.

Sheboygan County Circuit Judge Angela Sutkiewicz rejected Steven Avery’s request for a new trial on Tuesday, saying he had failed to establish any grounds to warrant a new proceeding.

Avery attorney Kathleen Zellner filed a motion with Sutkiewicz on Friday seeking to vacate the ruling, arguing her analysis of the evidence hasn’t been completed.

Avery was sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide in the 2005 death of Teresa Halbach, a 25-year-old photographer.

Avery maintains police framed him. The case gained national attention in 2015 after it was featured in the Netflix documentary.
