Judge orders Adnan Syed’s release after overturning murder conviction which was subject of Serial podcast

A judge has ordered the release of Adnan Syed after overturning his murder conviction, which was the subject of the popular Serial podcast.

Syed was 17 years old when he was sentenced to life in prison for the 1999 murder of his girlfriend Hae Min Lee, who was strangled and buried in a Baltimore park in 1999.

He has maintained his innocence and been appealing his conviction for years – with the case first brought to global attention by the 2014 hit podcast, which raised doubts about Syed’s guilt.
