Conviction overturned in Serial podcast murder case - BBC News

A judge has quashed the murder conviction of a man from Baltimore in a case that spawned the hit true crime podcast Serial.

Adnan Syed was 19 when he was sentenced to life in prison for the death of his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, whose body was found buried in the woods in 1999.

Prosecutors last week asked the court to throw out his conviction, saying a year-long case review had turned up two “alternative suspects”.

Syed will be released into home detention.
