Avery's Lawyer Wants Judge to Review Charges

By  | 

Steven Avery's lawyer is asking a Manitowoc County judge for a hearing on charges added after Avery's nephew came forward.
Avery was initially charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach, but prosecutors added charges of sexual assault, kidnapping and false imprisonment when Brendan Dassey, was charged in the case.
Prosecutors say Dassey confessed to raping and killing Halbach and helping dispose of her body.
A judge could issue a ruling on the request at a motions hearing next month.
