Making A Murderer, the wildly popular Netflix documentary, is back in the news with the successful appeal of Brendan Dassey. We check in with WKRC Local 12's Angenette Levy, who covered the case locally for her then-Green Bay, Wisconsin affiliate.

Dassey, now 26, was convicted of intentional homicide at the age of 17 and sentenced to life in prison. His videotaped interrogation and confession, which he recanted at trial, substantially contributed to his conviction.

Dassey's conviction was overturned by US Magistrate Judge William E. Duffin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 12, 2016, on the basis that his confession was involuntary and unconstitutionally coerced. He was ordered to be released within 90 days unless the state decides to retry him.
