(AP) -

A Baltimore judge has granted a new trial to a convicted murderer at the heart of the popular "Serial" podcast.

Syed, now 35, was convicted of strangling his high school girlfriend Hae Min Lee and hiding her body in a park in Baltimore; he was 19 when he was convicted.

The case was closed for years, but reopened after the podcast "Serial" honed in on questions that remain in Syed's case.
