Debate over the shocking crime documentary “Making A Murderer” rages on — as attorneys for both sides fight over the conviction of Steven Avery!
Kathleen Zellner is the new attorney for Steven Avery, who was convicted of killing Teresa Halbach, 25, on Oct. 31, 2005 — the same day she went to his scrap yard in Two Rivers, Wis., to take a photo of a minivan for Auto Trader Magazine.
Avery has been serving a life sentence that’s newly challenged in the wake of the controversial documentary series.
Now the convict has a new lawyer — and Kathleen Zellner insists that new tests can prove Avery was framed!
“Generally, since 2007, there have been significant advances in forensic testing … the clearest way to do this is with scientific testing,” Zellner said.
“Am I going to tell you exactly what it is? I am not. But it’s been a long time. There was a lot of evidence that wasn’t tested.”
Meanwhile, prosecutor Ken Kratz — who’s been cast in “Making A Murderer” as the main villain in Avery’s allegedly unjust sentencing — has gone on the defense by insisting that the Netflix doc covered up plenty of evidence proving the convict’s guilt.
The National ENQUIRER has already revealed how Avery’s own ex-fiancée believes that he’s a killer, and has uncovered more evidence of Avery’s guilt.
Now the veteran prosecutor has spoken out in a new documentary titled “Steven Avery: Innocent or Guilty?”
The ENQUIRER has a first look at the troubling film, with Kratz dismissing claims by Avery’s defense that a vial of blood — which served
In the documentary, the prosector disputes allegations made by Avery’s defenders that a vial of Steven Avery’s blood from the earlier rape case was tampered with — and used to plant Avery’s blood in the SUV owned by Teresa!
“Making A Murderer” says that a small hole in the lid of the vial is evidence of tampering .
Kratz, however, said that he can prove the “tampered” vial is part of a wild conspiracy theory.
”How to you think the blood got in there?” asked Kratz.
“The blood gets in there by putting a hole in it. There’s a nurse that was interviewed and said, ‘I’m the one who put the hole in there.’”
Kratz also said that Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, explains how Avery’s blood came to be found in Teresa’s car while confessing to being an accomplice.
“We find later when Brendan Dassey is interviewed that he and Uncle Steven, after she was shot in the garage, they…threw her in the back of the SUV while deciding how to dispose of her body,” he alleges.
“They originally had planned on placing the body in the pond.
“Believing there wasn’t enough water in the pond, Steven Avery carried out the plan to burn her!”
Zellner, meanwhile, is continuing her attempts to free Avery — while some “Murderer” viewers are convinced Kratz was part of a plan to convict Avery and stop a $36 million lawsuit he had filed against Manitowoc County.
Avery was suing over a previous rape charge where he had served 18 years in prison before being proven innocent by DNA evidence.
