Additionally, Avery is seeking radiocarbon testing that could potentially "establish the age of Mr. Avery's blood found in the victim's vehicle and determine, based on age, if the blood was planted."

His lawyers also as that advanced DNA testing take place on new evidence that has yet to be screened in the case, as well as pre-existing evidence that was tested back during the trial almost a decade ago.

This latest motion comes on the heels of the news that Avery's nephew Brendan Dassey's conviction was overturned.

A judge ordered that Brendan be "released from custody unless, within 90 days of the date of this decision, the State initiates proceedings to retry him."
