The Manitowoc County Clerk of Courts office has confirmed that Kathleen Zellner—the attorney for Steven Avery—has filed a post conviction motion in the case. Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey are serving life sentences for the October 31st 2005 murder of freelance photographer Teresa Halbach at the Avery Family Auto Salvage yard near Mishicot. Several requests have been made to acquire copies the one thousand plus page document. Several pieces of evidence are subject to testing which is described as “more advanced”  when Avery was convicted a decade ago. They include a car key—swabs of blood stains and some blood flakes. Meanwhile Dassey remains in prison after the state appealed a ruling last August by a Milwaukee County judge that he should be exonerated of all charges. An appeals court in Chicago is handling it with no hearing set for the foreseeable future.
