A Maryland judge has agreed to reopen the case of Adnan Syed, whose conviction in the death of his ex-girlfriend became the subject of a popular podcast.

Syed was convicted in 2000 of killing Hae Min Lee and sentenced to life in prison. He was 17 at the time of her death and is now 35. Last year, the "Serial" podcast explored the case and questioned whether Syed got a fair trial, drawing millions of listeners.

The judge ruled Friday that Syed should be allowed to introduce the testimony of a potential alibi witness and evidence that calls into question the reliability of cellphone tower data. Prosecutors used the cellphone data to link Syed to the park where Lee's body was found.

The hearing has not yet been scheduled.
