& # 39; I need all the public support you can give me. I will not give up if you do not give me up, & he added, thanked his supporters, and declared & # 39; the truth wins & # 39 ;.

After the first season of Making A Murderer, emphasis was placed on Avery's claims that his murder sentence was based on blood tests by investigators, and the second season focused on his appeal.

In February, Avery's lawyer won a trial to offer her allegation of misuse, arguing that the case should be retried.

Attorney Kathleen Zellner argues that the state should not have given Halbach & # 39; s charred remains to the deceased wife's family, thus preventing further testing during the appeal process.

The decision of the Wisconsin Court of Appeal will allow Zellner to offer her new evidence that the Prosecution has treated the remnants incorrectly.

Zellner then told DailyMail.com: & # 39; What is so unusual about the Court of Appeal's decision in Wisconsin is that this is only the third case ever in Wisconsin, where the court has given a suspect permission to review new evidence fill with a pending appeal. & # 39;

Steven Avery & # 39; s (left) lawyer Kathleen Zellner (right) won a motion in February to present her claim that the state would have mistreated the remains of murder victim Halbach

Zellner said: “The Court of Appeal, after reviewing our motion to add new evidence that the bones were given incorrectly to the Halbach family in violation of state and federal law, allowed us add that claim and evidence to our appeal.

A second part of the judgment is that the court returned the case to the lower court to determine whether the evidence was sufficient to grant Avery a new trial.

Zellner told DailyMail.com that if the lower court refuses a new lawsuit, they will refer the case back to the appeals court and they will decide on the evidence and other alleged constitutional violations in the case.

& # 39; We are convinced that Mr. Avery will get a new lawsuit and will be acquitted, & # 39; said Zellner.

With the new evidence, Zellner claims that state and federal laws were violated when investigators mistreated evidence, especially bones that Zellner believes may have been from Halbach.

Zellner had searched for bones that had been found in a gravel quarry in Manitowoc province and had not been tested on Avery grounds to see if these were the last remains of Halbach.

A 2011 report indicated that bone fragments were returned to the Halbach family without first notifying the Avery representative, Zellner said.

Avery and his cousin, Brendan Dassey, are currently serving life imprisonment in prison for the Halbach murder, largely based on the theory that her remains were burned on Avery's grounds.

Kathleen Zellner tweeted on Monday: & # 39; Avery Update: We Won !!!!!! Back to the circuit field. #TruthWins & # 39; Zellner now hopes to win that hearing and may prove that the state was mistaken in treating earlier evidence, which could have caused great doubt in the theory of the case that Avery landed behind bars.

If those bones could have been tested to determine if they were from Halbach, Zellner could have argued that the theory that the prosecutor who led to the convictions was not possible.

But now the bones have left guardianship, so there is no way to ensure that they have not been tampered with in a way that could complicate a test.

& # 39; The state without informing Mr. Avery and his lawyers during Mr. Im's immediate appeal. Avery, has resulted in material and potentially relieving evidence being transferred to the Halbach family due to the potential destruction by cremation or burial, & # 39; Zellner and lawyer Steven Richards wrote in the motion.

The current legal team at Avery heard that the bones were returned to the Halbach family after filing a motion to have DNA testing of the remains carried out on December 17.

# We are delighted that the Court of Appeal allowed the motion for pre-trial detention to the circuit court to supplement the record with our new evidence that the state destroyed material by returning the bones to the family Halbach, & # 39; said Zellner. Fox 11 in a statement.

& # 39; We believe Mr. Avery will receive a new lawsuit for this serious violation of both Wisconsin and federal law. & # 39;

Later on Monday, Zellner tweeted: & # 39; We will undergo an extraordinary number of constitutional violations when we're done. The COA (Court of Appeals) let us create an avalanche of evidence in this report. Higher judges rule. # TruthWins & # 39;

Zellner has said she believes Avery is innocent and will not stop fighting for her client until he is free.

& # 39; My experience with my clients … is that someone who is innocent just never ceases to purify himself, & # 39; said Zellner.

& # 39; I always said that if Steven Avery got a deal tomorrow, that if he admitted that he could serve another year and be free, but convicted of the murder, he would never do that. He would rather die in prison.

& # 39; He strongly believes that if the evidence is presented, the correct evidence is provided, that the system will ultimately work. & # 39;

No trial field date has yet been set.
