Steven Avery, subject of Netflix's "Making A Murderer," has filed a new appeal with the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.
The appeal cites, in part, an improper warrant, "ineffective" legal counsel and a tainted jury — calling out one juror in particular.
A male juror with the initials C.W. allegedly made multiple expletive-laced comments about Avery's guilt. He also reportedly told jurors that "if you can't handle it, why don't you tell them and just leave." (Video via Netflix / "Making a Murderer")
