WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — A judge is holding secret hearings in the case of the man convicted in the 2001 killing of Washington intern Chandra Levy.

Neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers have revealed the purpose of the hearings, which have been taking place in Washington behind closed doors. Several media organizations, including The Associated Press, are petitioning to open the proceedings.

The next hearing takes place on February 7.

Ingmar Guandique was convicted in 2010 of killing Levy, whose body was found in Washington’s Rock Creek Park.

The case captured the nation’s attention because of Levy’s relationship with California congressman Gary Condit. Condit was initially the main suspect but police no longer believe he was involved.

Levy’s father, Robert Levy, says no one’s told him what’s going on.
