6-30-14 new book details infamous avery case

MILWAUKEE (AP) — An eastern Wisconsin man's conviction for killing a photographer on Halloween 2005 after being released from prison for a rape he did not commit was one of the most dramatic criminal cases in state history.  Almost a decade later, the story of Steven Avery's wrongful conviction in 1985 and the murder of Teresa Halbach have been detailed in a book authored by a prosecutor in Manitowoc County.  The book, "The Innocent Killer," will be released August 7th by the American Bar Association.  Halbach's brother, Mike Halbach, is unhappy that someone would try to profit from his sister's death.  Assistant District Attorney Michael Griesbach says his intent in writing the book was so future prosecutors were "more aware of the enormous responsibility they will possess."
