Guilty Verdict In Chandra Levy Murder

Ingmar Guandique has been found guilty of the 2001 murder of Washington, D.C., intern Chandra Levy — a case that made headlines across the nation because of the victim's romantic involvement when then-Rep. Gary Condit.

Condit, a California Democrat, "was initially a suspect, but police no longer think he was involved," the Associated Press reminds us.

The Washington Post writes that Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, "was serving time for other attacks on women in (Washington's Rock Creek Park)." He was charged with Levy's murder in May 2009.
