New Trial Has Been Requested For ‘Making A Murderer’ Case
Steven Avery was accused of murder and was sentenced to life in prison that's when the wildly popular Netflix series Making A Murderer brought the case to the public and the outrage followed. Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey his nephew were arrested and charged with the crime. It appeared through the documentary that some of the evidence was planted and they weren't guilty of the crime.
Since the release of the documentary this week Steven Avery's lawyer filed a motion in court seeking a new trial for him in his conviction for the 2005 homicide of Teresa Halbach. Steven and Brendans lawyers claim that the Manitowoc County police went after them after Steven filed a wrongful imprisonment for a sexual assault he didn't commit.
Netflix has not yet announced when season 2 of Making A Murderer will come out, but it will be sometime later this year!
