A new motion has been filed in the attempt to secure a new trial for convicted murderer Steven Avery.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Avery’s attorney Kathleen Zellner said she is asking a judge to allow for the DNA testing of bones found on the Avery property, to determine if they are part of the remains of Teresa Halbach.
Zellner claims that Halbach was murdered and mutilated at the Manitowoc County Gravel Pit, and her bones were then planted in a burn pit near the Avery property to frame her client.
Zellner says if the remains are of Halbach, it would cause court authorities to order a new trial for Avery.
We are pleased to announce that one of the world’s leading DNA experts, Dr. Richard Selden @drrichardselden, is willing to test the bones in the Manitowoc County Gravel Pit with new Rapid DNA ID. If this testing is allowed, we believe the bones will be Ms. Halbach’s.— Kathleen Zellner (@ZellnerLaw) December 17, 2018
This will prove the murder and mutilation occurred in the Manitowoc County Gravel Pit and the bones were planted in Mr. Avery’s burn pit to frame him.
We are available to take your questions re this news starting at 2:30 pm CDT.
