Chandra Levy trial delayed

By Washington Post editors

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.

It take an expert to testify about why an inmate may testify? What a waste of taxpayer dollars...way to go Public Defender Service!

It just seems mighty convenient to find someone to pin the murder on and move scrutiny from those who wanted Ms. Levy gone.
