Steven Avery's defense attorney is hoping to use new DNA technology to find evidence Teresa Halbach's bones were planted on Avery's property.

Kathleen Zellner tweeted Monday afternoon that she filed a motion in appellate court to allow testing of bones found in a Manitowoc County gravel pit, including a pelvic bone.

She says a DNA expert is wiling to test the bones using Rapid DNA technology.

Zellner believes if they are Halbach's bones, it will prove the freelance photographer was murdered in the gravel pit and the bones were planted in a burn pit on Steven Avery's property to frame him.

Avery was convicted of murdering Halbach in 2005. Her bones and pieces of clothing were found in the burn pit.
