(AP) — The retrial of a man convicted of killing former Washington intern Chandra Levy has been moved from May to the fall.


Superior Court Judge Robert Morin agreed Friday to a request from Ingmar Guandique’s attorneys to delay the trial. The trial is now set to start Oct. 11, but that date is contingent on defense attorneys being able to move other trials on their calendars.

Guandique was granted a new trial in 2015. Defense attorneys had argued that a key witness at his previous trial gave false or misleading testimony. The retrial is expected to last about five weeks.

Levy’s 2001 disappearance created a national sensation after the 24-year-old California native was romantically linked with then-U.S. Rep. Gary Condit. Condit, a California Democrat, was ultimately ruled out as a suspect.
