WASHINGTON — Previously private court documents and transcripts of hearings related to the case of murdered Washington intern Chandra Levy will be made public, some immediately and others by the week’s end.

That’s what a judge and government lawyers said during a court hearing Monday. Lawyers have held a number of meetings in the case in recent months but the public and press have not been able to hear all those meetings. Lawyers have been discussing information that could discredit a key witness who helped convict Ingmar Guandique of Levy’s death.

Defense attorneys have said they intend to request a new trial based on the information.

Levy’s 2001 disappearance became international news after she was romantically linked with then-California Rep. Gary Condit. Her body was later found in Washington’s Rock Creek Park.
