Steven Avery's attorney claims another inmate admitted to killing Teresa Halbach

MARINETTE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Steven Avery's attorney claims to have documented proof of another inmate admitting to killing Teresa Halbach.

Kathleen Zellner tweeted pages of the alleged confession. 

On the last page, the man signs his name "Joseph Evans Junior."

People around Marinette County are familiar with Evans, because he was convicted of murdering his wife in 2009, four years after Halbach's death.

However, two years ago, the Rockford Advocate published a letter said to be written by Evans that disputes this alleged confession. 

In that letter, Evans said fellow inmate Steven Avery admitted to killing Halbach.
