The attorney representing convicted killer Steven Avery has renewed her calls for a new trial.

Kathleen Zellner submitted a brief Thursday, but there is no timetable for the appeals court to issue a ruling. Avery is in prison for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach on the Avery family property in Manitowoc County. In an October appeal, Zellner cited 10 issues calling for the new trial or having his conviction overturned. Requests for a pardon for Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, have been refused.
