The man who was tried and convicted of killing Chandra Levy in 2001 has had all charges dropped against him in a stunning turn of events.
The US Attorneys Office said that "new information" revealed in the past week was the reason for the charges to be dropped, according to ABC7 News.
The young brunette intern was involved with Congressman Gary Condit when she disappeared in Washington, DC. Her body was later found in a wooded area shortly after September 11, 2001.
Condit was never considered a suspect in her disappearance or murder, but details of their secret relationship cast a shadow over the lawmaker, who eventually left Congress following the scandal.
Ingmar Grandique was ultimately charged with the crime and found guilty of her murder in 2010. He was sentenced to 60 years in prison, but his lawyers claimed that testimony from his cellmate was a lie and the conviction was over-turned. He had been scheduled to be tried again beginning in October.
Earlier this year, Levy's mother, Susan Levy, spoke about the death of her child and the continuing cases. "No matter what, we don't have our daughter back," she said as she cried on the TODAY show in March. "My husband has tremendous anger. I have tremendous sadness. The anger and sadness is really the same."
