Avery attorney wants judge to reconsider denial of new trial
MANITOWOC, Wis. — An attorney for a Wisconsin man convicted of homicide in a case featured on the Netflix series “Making A Murderer” is again asking a judge to reconsider a prior ruling rejecting a request for a new trial.
A judge last this month rejected Avery’s request for a new trial, saying his attorneys failed to establish any grounds to warrant a new trial. Avery was sentenced to life in prison for the 2005 slaying of Teresa Halbach, a 25-year-old photographer. Avery maintains police framed him.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice declined to comment on Thursday’s filing.
