Steven Avery is escorted to the Manitowoc County Courthouse in Wisconsin for his sentencing in 2007. A documentary about his trial and incarceration has been a huge hit for Netflix

Making a Murderer's Jerry Buting, the defence lawyer for Steven Avery, is to appear on UTV to discuss the case.

The Netflix documentary hit has become addictive viewing for millions around the world.

Mr Buting is one of the defence attorneys in the case of Steven Avery - a Wisconsin man cleared of rape after serving 18 years in jail, only to be convicted for murder on seemingly trumped up charges just four years later.

He will appear on UTV Life show with Pamela Ballantine to talk about the Avery case, his role as part of the defence team and what lies ahead.

Mr Buting is in Belfast for the European Young Bar Association Spring conference where he is guest speaker.

Solicitors and barristers from around Europe will attend the conference where they will address Northern Ireland's position as "a hotbed of investment" according to hosts, the Northern Ireland Young Solicitors Association (NIYSA).

Invest NI and representatives from international law firms will complement the list of speakers.

The European Young Bar Association Spring Conference will take place at Belfast's Ten Square from April 7-9.

UTV Life airs this Friday at 10.40pm
