Chandra Levy murder trial continues

By Washington Post Editors

Prosecutors in the Chandra Levy murder trial have called an FBI scientist to discuss evidence found where her body was discovered Tuesday morning.

The scientist was being questioned about DNA evidence found on items at the scene.

Former congressman Gary A. Condit, who has been at the center of the Chandra
Levy case from the day the former federal intern disappeared nine years ago, took the witness stand in public Monday but refused to detail the nature of his relationship with Levy.

Also Monday, an old roommate of Guandique testified that Guandique's clothing went missing while both men were incarcerated in 2001, in the weeks after Levy disappeared.

The failure to locate Guandique's clothing is one of the investigative holes that defense attorneys have sought to exploit in their effort to raise questions about the government's case.
