Steven Avery Motion Denied

Local News

According to, a Manitowoc County Judge has denied Steven Avery’s requests for both a new hearing and a new trial.

Avery’s Lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, had argued that a computer disc containing sexually violent pornography belonging to another family member was withheld-which could have pointed to another suspect.

The Judge issued an 11-page ruling today that states the prosecution did not illegally withhold evidence during Avery’s 2007 murder trial.

The case is likely to go back to the Wisconsin court of appeals for review.
