The 54-year-old felon and his girlfriend, 53, have reportedly been dating for eight months via letters and phone calls.
They have only met in person once, however, as Steven is currently behind bars at Wisconsin’s Waupun Correctional Institute for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.
“Steven deserves every bit of happiness that comes his way,” Steven‘s attorney Kathleen Zellner told People. “He is very much in love and happy with Lynn so we are happy for them.”
The two plan to wed upon Steven‘s pending release.
