WASHINGTON — An Assistant U.S. Attorney told a judge on Monday that he planned to file more charges against the suspect in the murder of intern Chandra Levy, the Washington Post reported.

But the assistant U.S. Attorney Fernando Campoamor did not specify in D.C. Superior Court what the new charges would be against suspect Ingmar Guandique. A new arraignment on a superseding indictment was scheduled for Dec. 15, the Post reported.

As a result of the new charges, the January trial has been rescheduled for Oct. 4.

The Post said while the new charges were not disclosed, prosecutors have said Guandique had threatened to kill a potential witnesses, and that they had found at least one other person who may have been attacked by Guandique.

Guandique has been serving a 10-year sentence for attacking two female joggers in Washington’s Rock Creek Park not far from where Levy’s body was discovered in 2002, a year after she was reported missing.
