          “Making a Murderer”: New Details Revealed as the Sheriff’s Department Speaks Out

          January 18, 2016

          14313 title
          Dr. Phil continues to delve into the details of the controversial Netflix documentary “Making a Murderer,” which focuses on Steven Avery, a man exonerated by DNA after 18 years in prison. After being free for 2 years Steven Avery was arrested again, this time for murder.

          Convicted in 1985 for the rape of Penny Beerntsen and sentenced to 32 years in prison, in 2003 Avery was exonerated by DNA evidence. Then in 2007, Avery was convicted and sentenced to life in prison, without possibility of parole, for the brutal murder of Teresa Halbach. The prosecution presented seemingly incontrovertible evidence — Halbach’s SUV found in the Avery’s salvage yard containing Avery’s blood, a bullet with Halbach’s DNA embedded in the floor of Avery’s garage, the key to Halbach’s SUV found in Avery’s trailer, and Halbach’s remains in a burn pit on Avery’s property. Is Steven Avery the unluckiest man in America or is he a calculated killer who is right where he belongs, behind bars?

          Since the release of the documentary, hundreds of thousands of outraged viewers have signed online petitions to free Avery. In a daytime television exclusive, Dr. Phil talks to Kenneth Peterson, Avery’s arresting officer in the 1985 rape case and the Manitowoc County Sheriff when Avery was arrested for murder and put on trial. What information does he reveal for the first time?

          And, Avery’s defense attorney, Dean Strang, speaks out about his former client. What does he think about Avery’s conviction and the potential for a new trial? Plus, former Green Bay, Wisconsin news reporter Diana Alvear weighs in, and Avery’s former fiancée Sandra Greenman reflects upon the last time she says she saw Avery.
