Charges Dropped Against Chandra Levy’s Accused Killer

Charges have been dropped against the man accused of murdering former intern Chandra Levy in 2001.

ABC 7 reports:

Grandique was convicted for Levy’s murder in 2010, but his lawyers claimed important testimony from a cellmate was a lie. They said the witness only wanted to get preferential treatment from law enforcement, and a federal judge agreed that there were concerns. A retrial had been scheduled for November.

Levy’s death captured a lot of media attention because of a purported relationship with then-Congressman Gary Condit (D-California).
