Supreme Court reschedules 'Making a Murderer' conference

MADISON, Wis. — The U.S. Supreme Court has rescheduled a conference on whether to review the conviction of an inmate featured in the "Making a Murderer" documentary series.

WLUK-TV reports that the justices were scheduled to hold the conference on Brendan Dassey's appeal on Thursday. But the court's docket shows it has been rescheduled. No reason was given and a new date hasn't been set.

Four of the nine justices would have to agree to hear the case before arguments could be scheduled. If four justices don't agree to take the case, Dassey's conviction would stand.

Dassey has argued for years that investigators coerced him into confessing that he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Teresa Halbach in 2005. Dassey was 16 at the time.
