The release of an inmate featured in Netflix's 'Making
a Murderer' series is blocked today by a federal appeals
Brendan Dassey's release was blocked by a three-judge
panel from the U-S Circuit Court of Appeals.
Dassey was convicted in 2007 of raping and killing
Teresa Halbach and sentenced to life in prison.
A federal judge overturned Dassey's conviction.
saying investigators coerced Dassey into confessing.
That judge then ordered Dassey's release earlier this
but the Wisconsin D-O-J appealed that ruling.
