'Making a Murderer': Steven Avery Denied New Trial

Syndicate Post image

A USA man whose murder conviction was the focus of the popular Netflix series Making A Murderer has been denied a new trial by a Wisconsin judge.

Despite Avery's new lawyer Kathleen Zellner being confident of the defendants innocence, using Twitter on numerous occasions to update the public on the case, the judge said there was insufficient evidence to warrant another trial.

"Given the totality of evidence submitted at trial and the ambiguous conclusions stated in the experts' reports, it can not 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.

In August, a US appeals court agreed to reconsider the decision of a federal judge who overturned Dassey's conviction by ruling it was based on a coerced confession he gave as a 16-year-old with a learning disability.

Avery is now serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for the 2005 rape and murder of Teresa Halbach.

This is not the last step in the justice process for Avery.

Meanwhile, Kohli too is on a break after winning the 5 ODI against Australia and is seen holding a clapboard on the shoot. The Indian cricket appeared on chat show with Aamir Khan for a candid round of conversation for a Diwali special.

But Mr Dassey's conviction was overturned because his confession, made as a 16 year old, was coerced.

Avery served 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Prosecutors said the duo raped and murdered Halbach, a freelance photographer, on the Avery family's salvage yard in Mishicot, Wisconsin. Dassey remains in custody while the appeal is pending.

To this day, Avery maintains that he is innocent. Near the end of 2015, a 10 part Netflix documentary on the case raised questions amongst the public regarding his guilt.
