WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lawyers for the man convicted of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy are going back to court.

A Thursday hearing is scheduled in the case of Ingmar Guandique, who was convicted in 2010 of killing the 24-year-old. But it is not clear how much of the hearing may be open to the public and press.

A judge closed recent hearings, though documents related to some of them were unsealed in February. The records show that government prosecutors asked to seal a Dec. 18 hearing to talk about information they learned about after Guandique was sentenced. They also show defense attorneys believe the information calls into question the testimony of a witness and that they plan to ask for a new trial.

Levy disappeared in 2001. Her remains were found in 2002.
