Guilty Verdict Issued in Chandra Levy Murder Trial

Originally posted 11/22/2010 01:45PM

Nine years after Chandra Levy's death, a jury has convicted Salvadoran immigrant Ingmar Guandique of murdering her.

Guandique, 29, was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder for attacking Levy while she was jogging alone in Rock Creek Park in May 2001. Her body was discovered a year later.

Guandique could get a minimum of 30 years and a maximum of life in prison. His sentencing hearing has been set for Feb. 11.

The Levy case destroyed the political career of former Democratic Rep. Gary Condit, 62, who testified in the trial that he and Levy, 24, were on good terms at the time she went missing. He declined to respond to questions about whether the two were romantically involved.

Former California Rep. Gary Condit testified Monday he had nothing to do with Chandra Levy's murder, but refused to address if the two were romantically involved.

"I think we're all entitled to some level of privacy," Condit said Monday in a Washington D.C. courtroom at the trial of Ingmar Guandique, 29, who is charged with murder, kidnapping and attempted sexual assault.

Condit, 62, whose political career was destroyed by the sensational 2001 case, said he and Levy, 24, were on good terms at the time she went missing. Just the week before her disappearance, he helped her make career contacts.

A jailed laborer from El Salvador has been charged with first-degree murder in what had been one of the nation's great unsolved mystery cases: the 2001 slaying of Washington intern Chandra Levy.

Ingmar Guandique, who was already serving a 10-year sentence for attacking two women in Washington D.C.'s Rock Creek Park – where Levy's remains were found in 2002 – first came under suspicion that year, but police were hindered by a lack of physical evidence due to the severe weathering of Levy's skeletal remains.

At the time, Guandique and his lawyer said that he had nothing to do with Levy's death. He will now be brought to D.C. to face trial, reports The Washington Post.
