The Maryland attorney general is appealing the new trial granted to Adnan Syed, possibly delaying his retrial for months.
Syed, the subject of the popular podcast "Serial," has been serving a life sentence since 2000 in connection with the death of his ex-girlfriend from high school, Hae Min Lee.
But earlier this year, a judge decided new evidence could be presented in the case, which led to the new trial.
