For the second time this month, Manitowoc County’s Clerk of Circuit Court is asking for more time as convicted killer Steven Avery seeks a new trial.

Lynn Zigmunt filed court documents today asking for more time to gather records in connection with convicted murderer Steven Avery’s appeal for a new trial.

After Zigmunt’s first request for an extension on Feb. 10, she was given until March 2 to send records to the appeals court.

Avery is serving life in prison for his conviction in the 2005 killing of Teresa Halbach. Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey is also in prison for his role in the crime.

Avery is being represented by criminal defense attorney Kathleen Zellner during the appeals process.
