Steven Avery's lawyer claims to have new evidence that could see the Making a Murderer subject receive a new hearing after all.

Earlier this month, a judge ruled that there was not sufficient evidence to warrant a new trial over the murder of Teresa Halbach in an attempt to have Avery's conviction overturned.

However, Newsweek reports that Avery's lawyer Kathleen Zellner has now asked a Wisconsin court to reconsider the decision to deny a new trial based on fresh evidence, and has filed "a 54-page motion with 20 new exhibits".

"It does not matter how long it takes, what it costs or what obstacles we have to overcome – our efforts to win Mr Avery's freedom will never stop," said Zellner.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the decision to overturn the conviction of Avery's nephew Brendan Dassey would go before an appeals court.

Avery and Dassey were both convicted in the October 31, 2005 killing of Wisconsin photographer Halbach, a case which gripped the world when it was documented in Netflix series Making a Murderer. Both maintain their innocence.

Season two of Making a Murderer, which is expected to arrive on Netflix later this year, will likely follow all the developments in their case since the show first aired.
