Prosecutors announced Thursday that they were dropping all charges against Guandique, who was given a new trial last year after doubts were raised about a key witness at his 2010 trial.
The U. S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia issued a statement saying the murder case against Guandique could no longer be proved beyond a reasonable doubt "based on recent unforeseen developments that were investigated over the past week."
"After investigating this information and reviewing all of the evidence in this case, the government now believes it is in the interests of justice for the court to dismiss the case," prosecutors wrote in a one-page motion.
" the government has had to concede the flaws in its ill-gotten conviction," the lawyers said, noting that Guandique had passed an FBI-administered lie detector test regarding his involvement.
 Guandique was granted a new trial last year after doubts were raised about a jailhouse informant, Armando Morales, who was the key witness at Guandique's trial.
In May, defense lawyers sought to take depositions from several women who said they had sexual relationships with Condit.
Asian markets were mixed Friday after the Bank of Japan announced a modest expansion of its lavish monetary stimulus to perk up sluggish growth, sending the Japanese stock index up.
Japan's central bank opted Friday for a modest expansion of its lavish monetary stimulus to help perk up sluggish growth and combat deflation.
The Bank of Japan ended a policy meeting Friday by announcing it will expand purchases of assets from financial institutions to help inject more cash into the world's third-largest economy and pursue its 2 percent inflation target.

Stocks had another day of meager gains on Thursday as investors worked through a new batch of mixed company earnings, including results from Facebook, Ford and Whole Foods and looked ahead to a meeting of the Bank of Japan.
Indonesia executed four people convicted of drug crimes on Friday despite international protests and said it would decide later when as many as 10 others are put to death.
The government had said earlier in the week that 14 people on death row, mostly foreigners, would be executed for drug crimes.
Relatives, rights groups and foreign governments had urged Indonesia to spare all 14 lives but it was unclear whether that had any influence on the decision to not carry out all the executions at once.
Lawyers and rights groups had raised serious doubts about the legitimacy of the conviction of Jefferson, who had been in prison for more than a decade, as well as the convictions of an Indonesian woman Merri Utami and a Pakistani man Zulfikar Ali.
Last year, Jokowi's government executed 14 people convicted of drug crimes, mostly foreigners, sparking a huge outcry abroad, and particularly in Australia, which had two citizens among those condemned.
The latest executions did not attract the same level of media attention abroad but the European Union, U.
