(Washington Times) A judge has been holding secret hearings on the May 2001 murder of congressional intern Chandra Levy, a surprising move that casts doubt on the conviction and imprisonment of El Salvador illegal immigrant Ingmar Guandique.

Levy was working as intern in California Rep. Gary Condit’s office when she disappeared in May 2001. Suspicions were initially cast on Mr. Condit after it was revealed the two had been engaged in an affair. Levy’s body was discovered in a wooded section of a Washington, D.C., park in 2002, and Guandique was subsequently arrested.
