WASHINGTON – After a six-day hiatus, the Chandra Levy murder trial will resume and jurors will likely hear testimony from prison inmates who say Ingmar Guandique (gwahn-DEE'-kay) confessed to killing her.
Guandique, a Salvadoran immigrant, is charged with the murder and attempted sexual assault of Levy in 2001. The Washington intern's disappearance became international 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.
Jurors have already heard from a former cellmate of Guandique who testified that he confided killing her in Washington's Rock Creek Park. Similar testimony is expected this week.
The six-day break in the trial had been scheduled because of calendar conflicts.
