Public Defender Maria Hawilo asked a judge Friday to grant access to evidence from Levy's apartment and elsewhere for additional testing, The Washington Post reported. She represents Ingmar Guandique in the murder case. The 28-year-old was arrested in April and charged with first-degree murder.
Hawilo said Guandique's attorneys "don't believe the park is the crime scene."
Prosecutors have said Guandique killed Levy while she was out jogging in the park.
Judge Geoffrey Alprin denied Hawilo's request. He signed an order requiring prosecutors to turn over only evidence found in the park near where Levy's remains were found.
