Attorneys are returning to court for a hearing in the case of murdered Washington intern Chandra Levy.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys will convene for additional post-trial proceeding in the case of Ingmar Guandique. He was convicted of Levy's death and sentenced to 60 years in prison.

They're expected to discuss how much more information can be made public about a key prosecution witness who could be discredited. Defense attorneys have said they intend to request a new trial for Guandique-based on the information about the man.

The 2001 disappearance of the 24-year-old became international news after she was romantically linked with then-California Rep. Gary Condit. Her body was found in D.C.'s Rock Creek Park a year later
