Authorities Drop Murder Charges Against Man Accused Of Killing Former Intern Chandra Levy

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadViolence

no title

Ever since Chandra Levy first went missing in 2001, this has been a rollercoaster of a case.

On Thursday, prosecutors announced they won't retry Ingmar Guandique for the tragic murder of Chandra. The news comes on the heels of a judge granting a new trial for the perp in May 2015 due to a key witness allegedly lying to a jury back in 2010.

For those who don't remember, Ms. Levy's disappearance in May 2001 was at the forefront of the news prior to the 9/11 terror attacks. The 24-year-old's mysterious case was intensified due to her affair with former Congressman Gary Condit when she was an intern.

Unfortunately, C.L.'s remains were found more than a year later in a park where she had gone jogging the day of her disappearance. It wasn't until nine years after the discovery that authorities honed in on Ingmar who had been accused of attacking two female joggers in the past.

While prosecutors had the chilling testimonies of Guandique's other victims, most of their case rested on a jailhouse informant who said the criminal confessed to killing Chandra.

Following I.G.'s conviction (he was sentenced to sixty years in jail), his defense team tirelessly petitioned a judge to release their client over what they claimed was an unreliable informant. Ultimately, the team was granted their wish and an opportunity for a retrial.

To the disappointment of Levy's family, the prosecutors decided to forgo a retrial considering most of their case was built on the testimony of a now unusable informant:

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex Ed Hartwell Tells His Side Of The Divorce Drama As The Fight Over Their Assets Looms

Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineBreakups

no title

This is just another crazy case of he said/she said!

In an interview with Page Six, Ed Hartwell made a passionate denial against Keshia Knight Pulliam's claims of cheating and abandonment. The candid convo comes on the heels of Keshia's exclusive and emotional interview with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.

According to Ed, he made his uncertainties about the couple's marriage quite clear to Pulliam back in February, just a MONTH after they got hitched. Apparently E.H. realized he still had feelings for an ex he dated for four years (not his ex-wife Lisa Wu), a sentiment he revealed immediately.

Following the admission, K.K.P. essentially checked out of the marriage despite her "obsession" to have a baby:

"She started going out with friends all the time and not telling me when she was coming home or sometimes not coming home at all. I can't say she's been unfaithful. I can say she's stayed out, she's not came home, she's went out-of-town … for three days, I don't know what's going on. I can say that. I can't say she was unfaithful."

Even with all the drama and confusion surrounding their nuptials, the actress allegedly kept pushing for a little one:

"She wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that — from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people — that when you first get married, especially since we didn't have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby. That's something she really did want to do."

Since E.H. wasn't ready to have another kid yet (he already has a son with Lisa), he decided to pull the brakes on their sex life:

Comedy Central's Lawyers Won't Let Stephen Colbert Play The Character 'Stephen Colbert' On The Late Show!

no title

The law might have a hold on Stephen Colbert — but it's got nothing on Stephen Colbert!

Last week, The Late Show host dusted off his iconic Comedy Central character from The Colbert Report (who has apparently been living in the woods with Jon Stewart all this time) to talk about Donald Trump and the Republican National Convention.

Though fans were overjoyed to see the Champion of America resurrected, it looks like we'll never see the host of The Colbert Report again.

Patriots Star Julian Edelman Might Be Following A Little Too Closely In Tom Brady’s Footsteps — Get The Deets On His Paternity Controversy!

He's got a love triangle on his hands.

NFL Patriots star Julian Edelman is totally following in teammate Tom Brady's footsteps!

You know, if that means having a child with one woman (Bridget Moynahan, in Brady's case) and then moving on to date a high-profile supermodel (hey, Gisele Bündchen).

According to TMZ, Swedish model Ella Rose has filed paternity docs claiming the 30-year-old pro footballer is the father of her unborn child. Reportedly, she's almost six months pregnant.

Their sources say the two have been on and off for about two years, but it was never serious.

And the Boston Globe also revealed that while Julian "contested" the suit at first, he "now acknowledges the baby is his."

Interesting!

Although to make this truly a love triangle, it's also been recently reported that Julian and supermodel Adriana Lima are starting to become an item.

The Victoria's Secret Angel has two kids of her own, so who knows if this latest development will affect their rumored relationship in any way.

Luckily for this athlete though, he could always ask Tom for advice, right??

Johnny Depp's Lawyers Set A Date For Amber Heard's Deposition

Find out when Amber will be deposed!

It looks like Amber Heard's going to have to testify under oath pretty soon.

On Tuesday, Johnny Depp's legal team held an emergency hearing, where they convinced a judge to set a date to depose the actor's ex.

Related: Amber Claims Johnny Is Trying To Delay Their Divorce!

According to court papers, the judge ruled that the blonde will face questions from her estranged husband's attorneys on August 6, regarding her request for a permanent restraining order from her former flame.

The 30-year-old wanted the legal protection after filing for divorce from the A-lister, and alleging that he had physically abused her throughout their time together.

The 53-year-old's team had tried to depose the actress last month, but a judge denied the request because his laywers didn't give Miz Heard enough notice.

Plus, their June hearing ended up being postponed.

We're curious to see how the deposition goes during this next stage in their messy split.
