In the district, the Chandra Levy murder trial will resume on Monday with the defense taking the lead, after prosecutors rested their case.

Recent testimony followed a six-day break in the trial of accused killer Ingmar Guandique. Under direct questioning from prosecutors, an FBI forensic analyst testified that he found DNA belonging to former Rep. Gary Condit in underclothes which belonged to Levy.

The garments were recovered from Levy's apartment back in 2001 just days after her parent had reported her missing. Her body was found one year later in Rock Creek Park.

The analyst, Alan Giusti, also testified no DNA was found in a similar undergarment and sport tights recovered from the crime scene in Rock Creek Park.

One week ago under oath, Condit refused to say whether he had an intimate relationship with the former intern, telling prosecutors, "We've lost our sense of decency, and I didn't do anything wrong."
