Anyone who watched Netflix’s addictive true-crime documentary “Making A Murderer” should be interested to know that Dr. Phil will be grilling murderer Steven Avery’s new fiancee, Lynn Hartman, who has granted her first sit-down interview and describes how she found love with one of America’s most notorious convicted killers.
In the TV exclusive, Avery himself calls in from Waupun Correctional Institute in Wisconsin, where he’s serving a life sentence after his 2007 conviction for murdering photographer Teresa Halbach.
Avery and Hartman, who began writing to Avery earlier this year and met him in person for the first time only two weeks ago, discussed everything from their pending nuptials to his hope that he’ll be portrayed by Brad Pitt when Hollywood makes a film about his story.
“I haven’t been in love my whole life,” says Avery of his fiancee. “It’s not the same as the others. Everything is all different with her.”
Given that Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, recently had his conviction overturned, Avery believes he’ll likewise be freed. “The truth is coming out and sooner or later all the truth will come out,” Avery tells Dr. Phil, saying they’ll get married when he’s released from prison. “I want to wait until I’m out and I don’t think that’ll be too long,” says Avery, adding he believes his freedom is “right around the corner.”
The two-part interview will air on “The Dr. Phil Show” on Monday, October 3 and Tuesday, October 4.
