US court blocks release of 'Making a Murderer' convict

WASHINGTON, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Nov, 2016 ) - A US Federal appeals court blocked Thursday the release from prison of Brendan Dassey, one of two convicted killers in a case depicted in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer.

" The court in Wisconsin granted a stay to a judge's order that Dassey should be released, citing the state's appeal of the order, according to court documents.

"Mr. Dassey will remain in prison pending the outcome of the appeal," Brad Schimel, Wisconsin's attorney general who filed the emergency motion, said in a statement. Schimel has been countering moves by the US federal judge in Wisconsin, William Duffin, who in August overturned Dassey's murder conviction. Schimel appealed that decision.
