The popularity of the 2015 Netflix series "Making A Murderer" created new interest in the case of Steven Avery, the Manitowoc man wrongly incarcerated for 18 years for sexual assault, released and then arrested and convicted along with a nephew in the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.

At the time, Dassey was 16 and considered a "slow learner." Here's a collection of related stories pulled from our archives.
