The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear the case of a teenager convicted of rape and murder that was featured in the Netflix series “Making a Murderer,” the Associated Press reports. The decision leaves in place a lower court’s ruling against Brendan Dassey, who was 16-years-old when he confessed to joining his uncle in the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. His attorneys claim he is intellectually disabled and was pressured into a false confession.
