Exclusive: New Steven Avery Video Proves He Was Framed, ‘Making a Murderer’ Defense Attorney Says

A never-before-seen video shows that evidence against the subject of the hit documentary Making a Murderer must have been planted or fabricated, defense attorney Kathleen Zellner tells Newsweek.

The video is one of multiple experiments Zellner conducted to show faults in key evidence used to convict Steven Avery of murder in his 2007 trial. Zellner described the videos in court papers she filed this summer as part of his appeal, and she filed the actual videos with the court on Friday.

One of the videos shows an experiment where Zellner tried to re-create the chain of events police and prosecutors said led them to find a key belonging to Avery’s victim near a bookshelf in his bedroom after they had searched the room multiple times. Another of the videos shows a blood spatter experiment, during which Zellner and her team dripped blood on and inside a car to disprove a central prosecutorial theory.

Petition claims DNA proves VB man did not rape girl – WAVY

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A Virginia Beach man fighting a rape conviction from 1990 is getting some help. A petition filed with the Virginia Supreme Court claims DNA proves he didn’t do it.

Darnell Phillips was sentenced to 100 years in prison for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl in Virginia Beach.

The Innocence Project at the University of Virginia School of Law took on his case and recently filed a petition for writ of actual innocence on his behalf. It states the DNA testing completed in August did not match Phillips’. The Innocence Project says the only evidence against Phillips is a hair found at the crime scene that was believed to be Phillips’, although DNA testing completed in 2001 proved the hair did not belong to him.

10 On Your Side was in the courtroom in September when attorneys attempted get the Commonwealth’s Attorney and Virginia Beach Police to

‘Chelsea’ Proves Netflix Can’t Always Beat TV at Its Own Game (Opinion)

Let’s take a moment to celebrate a rare victory for traditional TV over Netflix.

There’s no other way to read the demise of “Chelsea,” the streaming service’s talk show featuring Chelsea Handler, who announced Wednesday that she is moving on after its second season concludes at the end of the year.  Though CEO Reed Hastings recently encouraged his company to take more swings on new originals, it’s always surprising when another season doesn’t happen considering how trigger-happy Netflix tends to be about renewals.

But maybe it shouldn’t be at all surprising when you contrast the quiet end of “Chelsea” with the white-hot zone that is late-night TV. Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden are as culturally relevant as ever, with impressive ratings to boot. HBO, TBS and Comedy Central are also succeeding in this genre, and for that they can
