    'Making a Murderer': Brendan Dassey's Conviction Overturned

    (CNN)The conviction of Brendan Dassey, a Wisconsin man who appeared in the documentary "Making a Murderer," has been overturned by a federal judge in Milwaukee, according to court documents obtained by CNN.

    Dassey was convicted in 2007 in the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. In overturning the conviction, the judge cited the manner in which a confession was obtained from Dassey, who according to court documents has a low IQ.

    I wonder what this will do for Avery, if anything. Prosecutors still have 90 days to bring Dassey to trial again.
