Asia McClain, Syed’s high school friend, testified Tuesday she did see him during the time he was supposedly committing the murder and disposing of the body in a park.
If Syed’s request for relief is granted, he could end up with a new trial, which he might have a better chance of winning.
His counsel said Syed’s former lawyer was in failing health and unable to properly work the case. His new alibi witness in McClain would also bolster Syed's odds.
Koenig updated listeners on the story in a 15-minute mini-episode and said she plans to update the story day by day as the hearing continues.
