A Maryland judge has set dates for a hearing in the case of Adnan Syed, whose conviction in his ex-girlfriend's death was explored in a popular podcast.
A hearing for post-conviction proceedings in the case was scheduled Tuesday for Feb. 5 and Feb. 8 after a judge agreed last month to reopen the case.
Syed was convicted of murder in 2000 of killing Hae Min Lee and sentenced to life in prison. Last year, the "Serial" podcast examined the case, questioning whether Syed got a fair trial and drawing millions of listeners.
