“The Wisconsin State Court of Appeals has agreed to hear a motion to discuss new evidence in the case of Steven Avery, best known as the subject of Netflix’s immensely popular “Making a Murderer” documentary series.
“According to Fox 11, Avery’s attorney Kathleen Zellner filed the motion, which will be heard in the state’s lower court.
“She alleges that investigators violated state law by mishandling evidence in the case of Teresa Halbach, whose 2005 murder Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey are currently serving life in prison for.
“The report notes that the subject of Zellner’s complaint stems from bones found in a gravel pit off the Avery property.
“She hopes to have them tested to see if they are Halbach’s. If they are, it undermines the state’s theory that she was killed and her body was burned on the Avery property.
“She also notes that a 2011 report indicates bone fragments were returned to the Halbach family without Avery’s defense being notified.”
