Steven Avery Files Murder Appeal After Netflix Doc
He wants them to take another look. With the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer casting doubts over his murder conviction, the 53-year-old is hoping to seize on public outrage by officially requesting to have his verdict overturned. Avery, who was representing himself, argues that his 2005 conviction resulted from jury bias and mishandled evidence. Prosecutors maintain the Netflix series left out crucial evidence of Avery’s guilt, but his new defense team aims to prove that in this case, justice turned a blind eye.
