WASHINGTON – Jurors in the Chandra Levy murder trial have heard nearly two weeks of testimony but have yet to hear key testimony from prison inmates who say the defendant confessed his crime to them.
Ingmar Guandique (gwahn-DEE'-kay), a Salvadoran immigrant, is charged with the murder and attempted sexual assault of Levy in 2001. The Washington intern's disappearance became national news after she was romantically linked with then-California Rep. Gary Condit. He was once the main suspect, but police no longer believe he was involved.
The trial's third week concludes Thursday. Jurors heard testimony from Condit on Monday. Jailhouse informants who say Guandique admitted killing Levy are still upcoming.
Authorities have no physical evidence linking Guandique to Levy's death.
