Attorney Kathleen Zellner claims Avery's conviction was based on planted evidence and false testimony, and makes a stunning accusation about who really killed Teresa Halbach.

In her 1,272-page filing, Zellner claims it was Ryan Hillegas (above, right), the ex-boyfriend of the murder victim, who actually committed the deadly crime, and contends Avery deserves a new trial because "the real controversy was never tried."

She wrote in the motion:

The Making A Murderer drama isn't just between accused killer Steven Avery and the U.S. legal system.

In his new book Illusion of Justice, Avery's former defense attorney Jerry Buting is spilling all the tea about the feud between himself and opposing counsel — prosecutor Ken Kratz.

In an excerpt released to EW, Buting says the two lawyers were civil with one another up until the trial, at which point, "his cordiality vanished."

Like many viewers of the Netflix series, Buting admits Kratz got "under my skin" during questioning:

Supporters of Steven Avery have been on a roller coaster of emotions the past few months.

People became intensely invested in the case of the murder of Teresa Halbach thanks to the hit true crime documentary series Making A Murderer.

The Netflix show presented an angle on the trial that cast heavy doubts on the guilt of Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey, who were sentenced to life in prison back in 2007.

Making A Murderer's Brendan Dassey Will Be Released From Prison While Prosecutors Appeal His Overturned Conviction

Filed under: Legal MattersNetflix

Good news for Brendan Dassey during this legal roller coaster.

On Monday, a federal judge ruled that the Making A Murderer subject will be released from prison while prosecutors appeal his overturned conviction.

For those of you who may not know, in 2007, the Wisconsin resident was found guilty of sexually assaulting and murdering Teresa Halbach.

A key part of the now-27-year-old's conviction was his confession, in which he detailed how he and his uncle, Steven Avery, allegedly assaulted and murdered the photographer.

However, the Netflix docuseries seemed to show Brendan was coerced into providing that confession, after his mental ability was called into question and his court-appointed lawyer didn't hesitate to take a deal.

So, in August, Judge William E. Duffin overturned the young man's murder conviction. But,

No more conjugal visits for these two…

The most surprising thing to come out of Netflix's Making a Murderer wasn't the fact that Brendan Dassey's conviction got overturned… it was that Steven Avery somehow found love behind bars!

As we previously reported, the subject of the Emmy-winning true crime docuseries announced his engagement to paralegal Lynn Hartman just last week following a few months of dating by mail.

Unfortunately, the public attention proved fatal for the pair's love life… because they've already ended their engagement after just a matter of days!

According to a Facebook post by Steven's former fiancée Sandra Greenman over the weekend, an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil actually caused the incarcerated icon to call things off with his "golddigger" of a girlfriend:

While the pair have tried to keep their romance on the DL due to threats against Lynn, the convict is now ready to share his joy with the world.

In an interview from prison, the controversial guy gushed:

"She's going to be my future wife, we'll be laughing forever."

Well, we're not sure what there is to laugh about considering S.A. was sentenced to life without parole for killing 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005…

As for Lynn, she's equally as thrilled about the engagement:

"I am very happy to announce that Steven Avery asked me to marry him today, and I accepted. It has been a difficult road getting to this point in our lives but we are very happy. Despite all obstacles, and Steven's wrongful conviction and incarceration, we plan to be married shortly after he is released."

Wow, the paralegal sure sounds hopeful! We guess Brendan Dassey's overturned conviction has given her a newfound sense of optimism!

Obviously, the romantic news has caused a bit of a stir with fans. In fact, the backlash got SO bad that Steven's friend Curtis Busse had to shut down some haters via Facebook.

Check out the message (below)!

Well, to each their own we guess!

So, what do YOU think of this news?
