In 2005, Steven Avery — the subject of the Netflix original series Making a Murderer — was convicted of murdering a woman named Teresa Halbach.


The Wisconsin resident was also convicted of rape in 1985 and spent 18 years in prison. Eventually, he was exonerated because of new DNA evidence.


"Threats against her and her family are totally untrue. Jodi must have been pressured by the state to change her story," Avery also wrote to Fox 6 News in Milwaukee.

"She would never have said anything bad about me, due to the fact that she wanted to marry me."
