Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Steven Avery, who's case was profiled in the Netflix documentary "Making a Murderer," talked with Dr. Phil on Tuesday.

Avery is serving a life sentence in a Wisconsin prison for the 2007 murder of Teresa Halbach. He maintains he's innocent.

Avery called in to the Dr. Phil show for his first interview since the documentary was released as Dr. Phil sat down with Avery's new fiance.

Dr. Phil: "Did you murder Teresa Halbach?"

Avery: "No. I had nothing to do with it." 

Dr. Phil: "Do you know who did?"

Avery: "Well, I got a hunch, but I ain't sure."

Dr. Phil: "Who's your hunch?"

Avery: "That I can't ... I can't say about that. Not at this time, anyway."

Avery's fiance Lynn Hartman told the Dr. Phil show that since this interview was taped, she no longer wants a relationship with him.

She does say she still believes he is innocent.
