“Serial” podcast star Adnan Syed faces more time in prison after Maryland’s top court on Friday reinstated his murder conviction.

The 4-3 Court of Appeals decision reversed an a lower court judge who granted Syed’s request for a new trial.

“We will not give up,” Syed’s lawyer Justin Brown said in a tweet after the ruling was postedm the Baltimore Sun reported.

The court ruled against Syed on his claim of ineffective assistance of counsel.

The majority agreed the performance of Syed’s trial counsel was “deficient” in failing to investigate the story of an alibi witness, but rejected the argument that the deficiency prejudiced Syed, the Sun reported.

A jury convicted Syed of murdering his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend and fellow high school classmate, Hae Min Lee, in 2000. He was sentenced to life in prison.

How can anyone agree that there is in fact an alibi witness in existence and that this was never suitably looked into or presented at his trial, yet then say it doesn't matter and continue to refuse to hear anything about it?
