MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Lawyers for Brendan Dassey - who's featured in the Netflix series "Making A Murderer" - have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his appeal.
Dassey's legal team petitioned the high court to review the decision of another court.
Lawyers claim investigators took advantage of Dassey's youth and low IQ to coerce his confession.
Dassey is appealing his 2007 conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach.
He was sentenced to life in prison for 1st degree intentional homicide.
A federal court in Wisconsin overturned Dassey's conviction in 2016, but a divided appeals court in December reversed the lower court's decision to grant him a new trial.
