Making a Murderer's Steven Avery Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Steven Avery, the subject of Netflix‘s Making a Murderer, has tested positive for coronavirus.

Steven Avery has tested positive for COVID-19, and is confined to his cell,” said his former criminal defense attorney, Jerome Buting, on Wednesday (June 3) on social media.

He also said his client’s ex-fiancee, Sandy Greenman, said the symptoms were “short-lived” and that he’s in “good spirits.”

Steven is serving a life sentence without parole for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach in Wisconsin, which was revisited in the popular 2015 docu-series examining whether he and his nephew were wrongfully convicted.

“It is true that Steven Avery has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus — he will fully recover. The bigger threat to him is whether the COA [Court of Appeals] will cure the disease that caused him to be wrongfully convicted,” his new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, wrote.
