Wisconsin prison workers have moved Stephen Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, from one maximum security facility to another.

The 26-year-old is listed as an inmate at Columbia Correctional in Portage, where he first began serving time, after his 2005 conviction for the sexual assault and killing of Teresa Halbach.

Dassey has been incarcerated in Green Bay since 2009. He was moved there so his appeal for a new trial could be heard in Manitowoc County, about 45 miles away.

Prison officials haven’t commented on the reason for the move.

It comes amid an uproar over Avery and Dassey’s convictions and the release of the Netflix documentary.
