One of the claims made in the court documents was that a new brain wave test conducted on Avery suggests he does not know certain, specific details of Halbach's death.
The attorney for Steven Avery has filed a post-conviction motion in the case, as she works to set Avery free. Monday a federal judge ordered Dassey... WBAY in Manitowoc says it has reached out to both Strang and Buting, who have declined to comment until they can read the motion in full.
Avery's attorney claims the man dumped Halbach's vehicle on Avery's property, making him the prime suspect, and that, "He had no alibi for October 31, 2005, the date Ms. Halbach was murdered, or subsequent days when her body was burned and bones planted".

Now Dassey is waiting for a decision from the US court of appeals. Defense attorneys also said a piece of evidence found in Dassey's bedroom, a key, was planted by sheriffs.

The Manitowoc County clerk received the document from Avery's legal team Wednesday morning.
Zellner also sought independent testing of the bottom of the hood latch of Halbach's Toyota RAV4 and tests on several blood stains that turned up inside Halbach's RAV4 - blood evidence that supposedly proved to belong to Avery.
In 2005, Dassey, then 16, confessed to authorities that he assisted his uncle in raping and killing Halbach, whose charred remains were found on Avery family property in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.
