During one of Earl Avery’s first on-camera interviews he said while he hasn’t seen Steven in more than a decade, he talked with him via telephone for the first time in eight years, last week.

During that call Steven allegedly told Earl his new lawyers told him to say Earl killed Teresa Halbach, Earl says.

Earl also said that he believes Steven Avery may be granted a new trial in Wausau.

“Everybody in Manitowoc County is against us,” he said.

As previously reported by WBAY-TV , Avery has secured new legal counsel, Kathleen Zellner, in the Chicago area.

Zellner recently said, “Since 2007 there have been significant advances in forensic testing,” and claims new information will be soon brought to light about latest Avery’s appeal.

Key players in the Steven Avery murder trial have received more recent attention after the release of the Netflix Series “Making a Murderer.”

Earl says he gets about 30 telephone calls a day from people who either hang up, or call him a murderer.

Alan Avery, Steven’s father, was also interviewed and said Steven’s mental state isn’t good.

“You’re locked up in a cage, it’s like one of my rabbits,” he said.
