article imageChandra Levy murder suspect to appear in D.C. court today

By Chris V. Thangham     Apr 23, 2009 in Crime
The man suspected of killing federal intern Chandra Levy was transferred to the Washington District by U.S. Federal marshals. He will appear today according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
Officials transported the suspect, Ingmar Guandique, 27 to the District from a federal prison in Oklahoma City. He has been charged with first-degree murder and is expected to make an appearance in the D.C. Superior Court today.
Guandique is a Salvadoran native but doesn’t have legal status to stay in the United States.
Investigations took eight years. Guandique allegedly assaulted Ms. Levy in May 2001, a California resident, and police say she was murdered while jogging along a hiking trail in Rock Creek Park. Police didn’t find her body until a year later in the park.
Initially, then Democratic Rep. Gary A. Condit was considered a suspect because he was having an affair with Levy. Later Condit had to resign from the post.
Guandique is currently serving a 10-year sentence after he was found guilty of attacking two other women in the same park around the time of Levy's disappearance. The women were attacked near where Levy's remains were found.
Authorities have statements from Guandique's victims and someone else who said he confessed to the murder. They also found a photograph of Levy, believed to be taken from a magazine, in his jail cell.
