After eight months of dating, Making a Murderer subject Steven Avery and Las Vegas legal secretary Lynn Hartman are engaged, Avery's lawyer confirms to Us Weekly.

"Steven Avery's engagement to Lynn is one bright spot in an otherwise unbelievably tragic and unfair life story," Kathleen Zellner, who is handling Avery's wrongful conviction case, said in a statement. "Cheers to both of them."
