Steven Avery, in prison after his conviction of murdering Teresa Halbach, has responded to the 'Making a Murderer' documentary on Netflix by sending a reply letter to FOX 6 in Milwaukee. The television station wrote him seeking comment after the documentary was released.

Avery writes; "Jodi Stachowski must have been pressured by the state to chance her story."  He ends the letter with; "I am really innocent of this case and that is the truth."

The letter comes to light following Wisconsin Assistant Attorney General Thomas' letter to the state court of appeals to not allow Avery bond while his latest appeal is considered.

Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey are serving life sentences for the 2005 death of Manitowoc photographer, Teresa Halbach
