MANITOWOC COUNTY, Wis. — A prosecutor in Wisconsin says he’s getting threats over a Netflix documentary.
The 10-part series “Making a Murderer” suggests the theory that investigators framed Steven Avery for murder.
In 2003, Avery was released from prison after spending 18 years in jail for a crime he did not commit.
Two years later, Avery and his nephew were arrested and convicted of murdering Teresa Halbach.
The documentary follows that case.
It suggests local law enforcement had it out for Avery, mishandled the case and may have planted evidence to frame him.
The special prosecutor says he was never asked for his side of the story and is now getting death threats.
Producers say Ken Kratz was given opportunities to give his side of the story.
Avery and his nephew have lost all state appeals to their life sentences.
