Play associated audio

A judge is holding secret hearings in the case of the man convicted in the 2001 killing of D.C. intern Chandra Levy.

Neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers have revealed the purpose of the hearings, which have been taking place in Washington behind closed doors. Several media organizations are petitioning to open the proceedings. The next hearing takes place on Feb. 7.

Ingmar Guandique was convicted in 2010 of killing Levy, whose body was found in Washington's Rock Creek Park.

Levy's father, Robert, says no one has told him what's going on. The case captured the nation's attention because of Levy's relationship with California Rep. Gary Condit. Condit was initially the main suspect but police no longer believe he was involved.
