Avery's request for new trial to be heard Tuesday
Steven Avery's request for a new trial will be debated in court Tuesday, 10 days before he's scheduled to be sentenced in the slaying of Teresa Halbach.
Dean Strang and Jerome Buting, defense lawyers, wrote a 39-page document trying to prove that the state denied Avery a fair trial in February and March.
They said it was inconsistent for the jury to find him guilty of killing Halbach but innocent of mutilating her corpse.
