The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday turned away a high-profile dispute on the voluntariness of juvenile confessions, a case that is connected to the “Making a Murderer” Netflix series viewed by millions in 2015.

Without explanation, the court denied certiorari in Dassey v. Dittmann, an appeal brought by lawyers for Brendan Dassey, who was convicted in 2005 in Wisconsin on rape and murder and sentenced to life, based on a taped confession and little or nothing else. He was 16 at the time, and borderline intellectually disabled.
