New Documents In Chandra Levy Case To Be Made Public

Play associated audio

We could learn more information in the case of murdered D.C. intern Chandra Levy by the end of the week, as previously private court documents and transcripts of hearings related to Levy's case are being made public.

That's what a judge and government lawyers said during a court hearing on Monday. Lawyers have held a number of meetings in the case in recent months, but the public and press have not been able to hear or read what exactly was being discussed. Defense attorneys have been discussing information that could discredit a key witness who in 2010 helped convict Ingmar Guandique with Levy's death.

Guandique's attorneys have said they intend to request a new trial based on the information.

Levy's disappearance in 2001 became international news after she was romantically linked with then-California Rep. Gary Condit. Her body was later found in Rock Creek Park.
