Both sides wrap up cases in Adnan Syed hearing


    BALTIMORE (WBFF) - It was a hard fought battle by both sides in Adnan Syed's post-conviction hearing. Attorneys for both sides wrapped up their cases Tuesday.

    This follows four days of testimony. Syed's defense team maintains his original trial attorney was legally ineffective saying, "She started to lose control of her operation. Her health suffered and she was not the same lawyer in 1999 she was in 1990."

    It's an argument the State has taken issue with saying, "Long before Ms. Gutierrez was fighting for her life she was fighting for her client."

    The family of the convicted killer says they're hopeful he'll receive a new trial. There's no timeline as to when Judge Martin Welch will issue his ruling.
