A Baltimore judge agrees to re-open case.
Adnan Syed, won a major victory late this afternoon when Circuit Court for Baltimore City Chief Judge Martin P. Welch agreed to re-examine post-conviction proceedings and evidence.
The evidence concerns a claim made by Asia McClain who said she saw Syed in the school library at the time of the murder. Syed’s lawyer never contacted McClain to have her present the alibi in court. Cellphone evidence used against Syed will also be re-examined.
Former Baltimore Sun reporter Sarah Koenig produced the show Serial, which told the story of the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee at the hands of Adnan Syed, both students at Woodlawn High School.
