There was much anticipation about Making a Murderer 2 after many viewers of the show – who believed in Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey’s innocence – were left feeling disappointed when they were put behind bars in the first series. Steven Avery, 56, was given a life sentence for the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2007 without the possibility of parole – plus an additional five years for the illegal possession of a firearm by a Wisconsin jury. Nephew Brendan Dassey, 29, was also given a life sentence with the earliest possibility of parole in 2048. Making a Murderer 2 picked up 10 years after Steven and Brendan were convicted, seeing Steven have new legal representation in the form of wrongful conviction lawyer, Kathleen Zellner.

Zellner explained that where it all went wrong for Avery in the trial could be broken down into three key factors. The first element is “ineffective counsel”. While Zellner appreciates the difficulty of the case, she thinks Steven’s original defence lawyers Jerome Buting and Dean Strang were “negligent” in their approach. She explained: “So the State had 14 experts. They had ballistics [the science of projectiles and firearms], they had DNA, they had trace evidence, all of that and Mr Avery’s defence counsel only had one expert. They had a forensic anthropologist. “This case turned on the forensic evidence, and so you cannot win a case such as the Avery case without forensic experts. So, the short answer to it, is yes, they were negligent in not having those experts. “Was it a difficult case? Absolutely. Because there was so much forensic evidence against Mr Avery. But that does not excuse not having your own experts. So, I mean it’s just the reality. And his attorneys have given me affidavits saying they were negligent in not having experts. So they’ve cooperated. “And when you’re talking about saving someone’s life, you’re not going to quibble about your own professional pride when it’s clear that you should have had experts.” The second element that Zellner feels worked against Avery in this case was his reputation of being a “juvenile delinquent” in his youth.
