Judges hear appeal from victim's family in Adnan Syed case
(Annapolis, MD) -- Maryland's second-highest court will now decide whether to reinstate the conviction of Adnan Syed for the murder of Hae Min Lee.
The Appellate Court of Maryland heard arguments today from lawyers for the state, Syed and Lee's family, who are also asking for a redo of a hearing overturning Syed's conviction last year.
Lee's brother Young claims he was not given enough time to appear in person for the hearing that led to Syed's release from prison.
Syed spent 20-years behind bars for the 1999 killing of his ex-girlfriend before Baltimore prosecutors dropped all charges and released him in September.
His case gained national attention after it was featured on the "Serial" true-crime podcast.
