Steven Avery asks for a new trial in the slaying of Teresa Halbach
Steven Avery wants a new trial.
The man who served 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit only to be convicted of killing Teresa Halbach in 2005, filed his request Monday in Manitowoc County Circuit Court.
Two public defenders now represent Avery, 46.
They said he should have been given the chance to show that others, including Avery's two brothers, had the motive to slay Halbach at the family's auto salvage yard near Mishicot.
