Partial transcripts of sealed hearings in the murder case of D.C. intern Chandra Levy will be released, the Associated Press reported.

Levy, 24, disappeared in May 2001, when she was an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Her remains were found in Rock Creek Park a year later. The case gained national attention because of Levy's affair with then-U.S. Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.).

In 2010, Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador was convicted of murdering Levy. But in the past couple of months, a judge has been holding sealed hearings that might indicate that there was an issue with the prosecution.

On Thursday, a D.C. Superior Court judge said that partial, redacted transcripts of recent hearings will be made available in about a week. A prosecutor said that the defense made claims in those hearing that the government disagrees with, according to the AP.
