'Making A Murderer' Subject Steven Avery Is One Step Closer to a Retrial

By Anna Quintana

It looks like Steven Avery's legal team is one step closer to getting their client out of prison. 

The Making a Murderer subject just won a major appeal in his legal case, and his attorney, Katherine Zellner, shared the good news with supporters on Twitter. "Avery Update: We Won!!!!!!" she wrote. "Back to the circuit court. #TruthWins."Earlier this month, Zellner filed a motion with the  Wisconsin Court of Appeals to reexamine bones that allegedly belonged to victim Teresa Halbach. 

Since Avery's motion was granted on Monday, February 25, this means that the bones will be subjected to a DNA test to confirm if in fact they did belong to Teresa. Previously, tests to determine if the bones were animal or human remains were inconclusive. 

"We are going to have an extraordinary number of constitutional violations when we are done. The COA is letting us create an avalanche of evidence in this record. Higher courts rule. #TruthWins," she added. "[Avery’s] DREAM OF FREEDOM is a NEW REALITY as [Court of Appeals] lets us reveal all the State’s BAD FAITH, DESTRUCTION & SUPPRESSION of evidence — misdeeds cannot be undone. State’s old way of doing business is OVER."
