Steven Avery's prosecutor Ken Kratz is writing a tell-all book about the Teresa Halbach murder trial featured in the Netflix docuseries, "Making A Murderer." The former Wisconsin district attorney announced he wants to share his side of the case.
Kratz made the announcement Sunday during an interview with WBAY Action 2 News. "Finally grateful to tell the whole story," he said, adding that "the one voice forgotten to this point is Teresa Halbach."

According to Page Six, Kratz will shop ideas for the book to publishers next week. The former D.A. told the outlet his reasoning for penning the book is because he believes the Netflix series "slanted evidence" to make it appear like he was the villain and Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were innocent.
“If I was spoon-fed only what the Netflix documentary wanted me to see, I’d come to exactly the same conclusion. I’d be outraged,” he told the outlet. “This was a case that included the murder and dismemberment of a 25-year-old woman. It’s not fair to her memory, or to her family. They deserve some closure.”
Kratz added, "There are parts of this case that no one else knows."
Kratz has long said the 10-part Netflix docuseries left out important information about Avery's case. He told People magazine that viewers didn't see that Avery allegedly called Halbach's cellphone multiple times on Oct. 31, 2005, the day she went missing. Kratz also claims that Avery used the *67 feature to hide his number.
According to Kratz, other missing information includes Avery specifically requesting Halbach to come and take the photos, and claims that the junkyard worker allegedly talked about raping and killing women while he was in prison for the sexual assault of Penny Beernsten.
TV personality Nancy Grace also believes Avery is guilty and agrees with Kratz that viewers weren't given the full story.
“It’s not what I think. It’s what I know," she told reporters at a TCA panel (via Us Weekly). "Steve Avery is guilty ... I love ‘Making A Murderer.’ It’s beautifully put together, it’s just leaving out about 60 or 70 percent of the evidence.”
