MADISON - The U.S. Supreme Court has rescheduled a conference on whether to review the conviction of an inmate featured in the "Making a Murderer" documentary series.
WLUK-TV reports that the justices were scheduled to hold the conference on Brendan Dassey's appeal on Thursday. But the court's docket shows it has been rescheduled. No reason was given and a new date hasn't been set.
Four of the nine justices would have to agree to hear the case before arguments could be scheduled. If four justices don't agree to take the case, Dassey's conviction would stand.
Dassey has argued for years that investigators coerced him into confessing that he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Teresa Halbach in 2005. Dassey was 16 at the time.
WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
