Could ‘Making A Murderer’ stars be the big winners of the US midterm elections?

There’s new hope of a pardon for Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey

The imprisoned stars of Netflix’s Making A Murderer may be freed thanks to a US midterm election result.

Democrat Tony Evers gained control of governorship in Wisconsin today (November 7), which is the state that the true-crime documentary is set in, and with his appointment comes fresh demands to grant a pardon.

Jerome Buting, Steven Avery’s trial lawyer for the murder of Teresa Halbach, has called for the Governor-elect to free Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was also convicted for involvement in the crime.
