BAL­TI­MORE (AP) — A for­mer pros­e­cu­tor who ar­gued against a new mur­der trial for a man known to mil­lions through the pop­u­lar Se­rial pod­cast is run­ning for of­fice. The Bal­ti­more Sun re­ported Thurs­day that Thiru Vig­nara­jah will run in next year’s Demo­cratic pri­mary for Bal­ti­more state’s at­tor­ney. The for­mer Mary­land deputy at­tor­ney gen­eral is known for han­dling the state’s op­po­si­tion for a new trial for Ad­nan Syed. The sub­ject of the pop­u­lar Se­rial pod­cast, Syed says he was wrongly con­victed of killing his ex-girl­friend in 1999. He won a new trial, which the state is ap­peal­ing.
