PROSECUTORS FILE MOTION TO VACATE MURDER CONVICTION OF ADNAN SYED

Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is seeking a new trial against Adnan Syed.  Prosecutors filed a motion to vacate his murder conviction after a year-long investigation revealed two new possible suspects.  Syed has maintained his innocence since he was convicted in 2000 of murdering his high school girlfriend, Hae Min Lee. The case gained national attention in the 2014 podcast, “Serial,” and the 2019 documentary, “The Case Against Adnan Syed.”
