Chandra Levy trial delayed
A D.C. judge has delayed the trial of a man accused of killing federal intern Chandra Levy and barred attorneys from speaking to the media about the case.
Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher on Monday postponed Ingmar Guandique’s trial, which was to start next week, to Oct. 18.
Fisher says the extra time is needed to resolve outstanding issues including the prosecution’s opposition to a defense expert witness expected to discuss why inmates agree to testify for prosecutors.
Guandique has pleaded not guilty to Levy’s slaying and related charged. Levy disappeared in 2001. Her remains were found in Washington’s Rock Creek Park a year later.
