Officials: Warrant Issued In Chandra Levy Killing

WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in Washington, D.C. say that a murder warrant has been issued for an imprisoned Salvadoran immigrant in the 2001 slaying of federal intern Chandra Levy.

U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Taylor and city officials said Tuesday that Ingmar Guandique killed Levy on May 1, 2001 as she was walking her dog through a Washington park.

Guandique is in federal prison in Adelanto, Calif., for attacking two women in the same Washington park where Levy’s remains were found in 2002. If convicted in Levy’s death, he could face up to 60 years in prison.

The case had gone cold for years after destroying the career of former Rep. Gary Condit of California.
