State asks for hearing in Avery case

A hearing with evidence pertaining to the Steven Avery case has been requested. 

Assistant Attorney General Thomas Fallon sent a letter to Judge Sutkiewicz requesting a status conference in late October or early November. 

"This should give the State ample time to locate and inventory all items which are the subject of Defendant’s Motion. Additionally, this should provide the State with time to determine which items are covered by the April 4, 2007, Preservation of Blood Evidence and Independent Defense Testing Order entered by Judge Patrick L. Willis at the conclusion of Defendant’s trial," the letter stated. 

Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, were convicted in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.

On August 26, Avery's attorney, Kathleen Zellner, filed a motion for relief with the state Court of Appeals. In the motion, Zellner asks to suspend the August 29th briefing.
