 The U-S Supreme Court isn't saying why it will delay a discussion of the Brendan Dassey case.

  Dassey is challenging his life sentence in the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach in Manitowoc County.  The high court's website says the discussion is being rescheduled, but no new date was revealed.  Dassey's case was put in the spotlight by a Netflix docu-series three years ago called, "Making A Murderer."  He was 16 when Halbach was killed and he and his uncle, Steven Avery, were found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide.  Dassey's attorney argues his confession was coerced.
