Making A Murderer: Steven Avery's Lawyer Says 'Huge Amount' Of New Evidence Could See Him Freed

Steven Avery's lawyer Kathleen Zellner has said there is a 'huge amount of new evidence' in his case.

Taking to Twitter to update her followers on any new developments, Kathleen said they are still 'working as hard as ever' on the case, which was the subject of Netflix doc, Making a Murderer.

She wrote: "Just in case any of you are wondering we are working as hard as ever on Steven Avery’s case. We will be filing a new petition with a huge amount of new evidence. We will never give up pounding on the doors of justice for him. @MakingAMurderer #TruthWins."

Avery, 59, remains in prison for the murder of Theresa Halbach in 2005.

Avery has always maintained his innocence and believes he was framed by the Manitowoc County Police Department after he sued them for wrongful conviction for another crime in 2003.

Last year was an eventful year for Avery, with many developments on the case.

A court filing on 13th April stated that a delivery driver had come forward and said he saw Bobby Dassey with an unidentified, bearded man in his 50s-60s pushing a Toyota RAV-4 (the model Teresa Halbach was driving) onto the Avery property in the early hours of 5th November 2005.

This placed Steven Avery's nephew, Bobby Dassey (Brendan Dassey's brother), at the scene of the crime.

Then, Brad Dassey, who is Brendan's half-brother, claimed that his uncle Avery is innocent and that his step-mother, Barb Tadych, might have something to do with the case.

Fast forward to the 23rd April, and Zellner accused the state of Wisconsin of 'withholding' crucial evidence in a letter after new witnesses came forward. But in July, the court rejected Avery's appeal, with Zellner tweeting: "Not deterred by the appellate court decision--it pointed out the specific doors that are still open for Mr. Avery's quest for freedom. We appreciate the careful review. #Onward #TruthWins."

The most recent update was in August, when it was announced that Avery had asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take on his case.

We're looking forward to hearing the latest new evidence!
