A D.C. judge is delaying the trial of a man accused of killing federal intern Chandra Levy and is barring attorneys from speaking to the media about the case.
Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher postponed Ingmar Guandique's trial, which was supposed to start next week. It will now begin October 18.
Fisher says the extra time will help resolve outstanding issues.
For instance -- the prosecution's opposition to a defense expert witness expected to discuss why inmates agree to testify for prosecutors.
Guandique has pleaded not guilty to Levy's killing and related charges.
Levy disappeared in 2001.
Her remains were found in Washington's Rock Creek Park a year later.
