WI Supreme Court Denies Avery Request

The Wisconsin Supreme Court will not re-open Steven Avery’s murder case.

The high court Wednesday denied Avery’s request for a new trial. Justices did not say why.

Avery’s lawyer wants a new trial, she says based on new evidence. Avery became famous because of the Netflix docuseries “Making a Murderer,” which examined his conviction for the death of Theresa Halbach in 2005.
