Steven Avery appeals murder conviction, claims he was 'deprived of impartial jury'

Steven Avery appeals murder conviction, claims he was 'deprived of impartial jury'

Steven Avery says evidence found on his property "is clearly "FRUIT OF THE POISONOUS TREE" and that a juror improperly influenced others.

Making a Murderer is a 10-part documentary series that follows the case of 53-year-old Wisconsin native Avery.

Netflix Steven Avery, who's been jailed since 2008, is filing a motion to appeal his murder conviction, claiming he never received a fair trial.

Several legal experts who have already weighed in on the matter believe that his odds are good, due to the level of controversy surrounding his conviction. The Netflix documentary series "Making a Murderer" examines the case of the two and presents a theory that Dassey and Avery were framed by law enforcement officers in Manitowoc County, Wisc.

The Associated Press attempted to contact Avery's new attorney, Kathleen Zellner, but she wasn't immediately available for comment.

According to the appeal papers, Avery claimed: "The Judge Angela Sutkiewicz, Inartfully Circomnavigated Around irrefutable, Uncontrovertable Evidence in Averys Favour that both refutes and rebukes the Memorandum Decision [sic]..."

That included Steven Avery phoning Teresa Halbach three times on the day of her murder, and Kratz claiming the bullet with Halbach's DNA was traced back to Steven Avery's rifle.

Making a Murderer has caused quite a bit of controversy as of late. Avery has filed a new appeal asking for his conviction to be overturned.

With Zellner's record and the overwhelming evidence that authorities didn't handle Avery's case fairly, Zellner was confident they would win.

Though it's unclear whether Strang and Buting are specifically mentioned, Avery stated that "if not for the ineffective assistance of all six trial and appellate counsels, Avery would have been a FREE MAN". She's the legal director of the Midwest Innocence Project.

Avery sued Manitowoc County for millions before he and Dassey were arrested for Ms Halbach's death.
