    One of the issues in the recent Virginia election was the Salvadoran MS-13 gang which thrives in the state, practically outnumbering the police in some counties. MS-13 is not a new arrival in the region, and one of its members, Ingmar Guandique, is the only person ever convicted for the murder of Chandra Levy of Modesto, California. In 2001, the University of Southern California graduate, 24, was living in Washington and working as an intern at the federal Bureau of Prisons. On May 1, 2001, Levy disappeared without a trace. Fingers quickly pointed at congressman Gary Condit, 53, a Modesto...
  • Reliance on jailhouse informant dooms Chandra Levy case

    Armando Morales was a gang leader, drug dealer and a jailhouse snitch. But he was also a commanding, dynamic presence on the witness stand when he told jurors that his cellmate, Ingmar Guandique, confessed to the murder of Washington intern Chandra Levy. Jurors believed Morales, and prosecutors obtained a conviction against Guandique at his 2010 trial despite lacking a confession, witnesses or DNA evidence. They obtained a conviction even though everyone knew that police had initially suspected another man, former California congressman Gary Condit. But for the last five years, while Guandique was imprisoned on what was to have been...

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, DC on Thursday moved to dismiss the case -- and a retrial -- against Ingmar Guandique, the illegal immigrant previously convicted of murdering intern Chandra Levy in May 2001, citing "unforeseen developments." Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, is set to be released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings. The 2010 conviction of Guandique -- and the 60-year prison sentenced imposed on him at the time -- was vacated and a new trial was ordered in 2015 based on what Guandique's defense team said was new evidence. "Today, in the...

    Defense attorneys for a man convicted of killing former Washington intern Chandra Levy are making clear that at his second trial, they plan to offer jurors evidence pointing to former California Congressman Gary Condit. Levy’s 2001 disappearance created a national sensation after the 24-year-old was romantically linked with Condit, a Democrat

    Gary Condit accused of lying during trial for man convicted of murdering his former lover Chandra Levy A lawyer for a man convicted of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy said on Friday that former California Congressman Gary Condit, who was romantically linked to Levy, misled the jury when he testified during the man's trial. Ingmar Guandique's attorney Eugene Ohm made the allegation during a court hearing ahead of Guandique's scheduled March re-trial. Ohm said that notes of an interview that authorities did with Condit after Levy's disappearance show that Condit, a Democrat who served in Congress from 1989 to 2003,...

    The circumstances surrounding Levy's death were unclear for eight years. On March 3, 2009, D.C. authorities obtained a warrant to arrest Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who had already been convicted of assaulting two other women in Rock Creek Park around the time of Levy's disappearance. Prosecutors alleged that Guandique had attacked and tied up Levy in a remote area of the park and left her to die of dehydration or exposure.

    A D.C. judge on Thursday granted a new trial to the man convicted of killing federal intern Chandra Levy in 2001, but prosecutors face steep challenges after acceding to the defense request to retry the case, attorneys and legal experts said. D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald I. Fisher, who presided over the 2010 trial that sentenced Ingmar Guandique, 34, to 60 years in prison, set aside the verdict and agreed to bring the case before a new judge and jury. “Unless there is something else to be said, I would grant the motion for a new trial,” Fisher said in...

    A man convicted of killing Washington DC intern Chandra Levy fourteen years ago is expected to get a new trial after government attorneys on Friday said the 'interests of justice' would best be served by one. On Friday, after more than a year of sporadic hearings and legal wrangling, government attorneys made a stunning legal decision and withdrew their opposition to a new trial for El Salvador native Ingmar Guandique, 33. In a four-page motion, they told a judge they were preparing to retry him after doubts have emerged about the testimony of his one-time cellmate. Guandique's attorneys had previously...

    Conservatives in the Ohio House this week blocked a move widely viewed as an attempt by Governor John Kasich to set aside money he could later spend on Medicaid expansion without legislative approval. The version of House Bill 483 (HB 483) passed by the Ohio Senate included a last-minute change to move as much as $300 million in surplus state revenue to the state Medicaid Reserve Fund. Legislators feared this was an effort by the Kasich Administration to circumvent the General Assembly for spending on the Obamacare Medicaid expansion when an existing appropriation expires in mid-2015. ... Kasich, a Republican,...

    The November 2010 testimony of Morales helped convict Ingmar Guandique, the man charged with killing Levy in Washington, D.C.’s Rock Creek Park in May 2001. Levy’s death occurred shortly before she was to return to her family’s Modesto, Calif., home, and her disappearance drew national attention following speculation and then revelations that she had been having an affair with then-Rep. Gary Condit. A former cellmate of Guandique, Morales testified that the younger inmate had confessed to him that he had killed Levy. Guandique was sentenced to 60 years following his conviction in 2010 on first-degree murder charges Guandique’s defense attorneys,...

    WASHINGTON -- A judge has been holding secret hearings in the case of the man convicted in the 2001 killing of Chandra Levy, the latest twist in a high-profile murder that went unsolved for years and captivated the public because of the intern's romantic relationship with a California congressman. The meetings, held sporadically behind closed doors at the courthouse over the last several weeks, raise questions about what comes next in a criminal case that appeared resolved by the 2010 conviction of Ingmar Guandique. The illegal immigrant from El Salvador is now serving a 60-year prison sentence in Levy's death,...

    A judge is holding secret hearings in the case of the man convicted in the 2001 killing of Washington intern Chandra Levy. Neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers have revealed the purpose of the hearings, which have been taking place in Washington behind closed doors. Several media organizations, including The Associated Press, are petitioning to open the proceedings. The next hearing takes place on February 7. Ingmar Guandique was convicted in 2010 of killing Levy, whose body was found in Washington's Rock Creek Park. The case captured the nation's attention because of Levy's relationship with California congressman Gary Condit. Condit was...

    The conservative blogger who first broke the Anthony Weiner scandal revealed today he has an X-rated picture of the shamed congressman - and will release it if the Democrat attempts reprisals against him. Andrew Breitbart admitted he considers the image an 'insurance policy' against any future 'jihad' from the congressman, and claimed he could have ended Mr Weiner's career if he had chosen to publish it previously. The political commentator dramatically stole the show at Mr Weiner's press conference yesterday, hijacking it just before the disgraced politician was due to appear.

    WASHINGTON -- Chandra Levy was murdered, by means unknown, the Washington D.C. medical examiner said today in a disclosure that deepened the mystery behind the demise of the 24-year-old intern who disappeared more than a year ago. "There is insufficient evidence" to establish a precise cause of death, Jonathan L. Arden told a news conference. He said he had not ruled in or out potential causes of death, strangulation among them. He also said he could not determine whether the young woman died where her skeletonized remains were found, or if she had been brought there after her death. Arden...

    DEVELOPING: A jury has reached a verdict in the trial of a man accused of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy, MyFoxDC.com reports. Ingmar Guandique is charged with murder in Levy's death nearly a decade ago. Levy disappeared in 2001. Her case drew attention when she was romantically linked to then-Congressman Gary Condit. The California Democrat was initially a suspect but police no longer think he was involved. Prosecutors say Levy's death fits a pattern of attacks by Guandique in 2001 in Washington's Rock Creek Park. That's where her remains were found. Defense lawyers say the Salvadoran immigrant has become a...

    If one person is associated with the mysterious slaying of Washington intern Chandra Levy, it isn't the man who will soon be tried on charges he murdered her. It's former California congressman Gary Condit, whose political career imploded after he was romantically linked to the woman and became the No. 1 suspect. Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, goes on trial Monday for Levy's 2001 killing.

    Chandra Ann Levy (April 14, 1977–ca. May 1, 2001) was an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C., who disappeared in May 2001 and is presumed murdered after her skeletal remains were found in Rock Creek Park in May 2002. The investigation led to media allegations of an extramarital affair with then-U.S. Representative Gary Condit,[1] a Democrat representing California's 18th congressional district and a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Condit was never named a suspect by police and was ultimately cleared of involvement, however the cloud of suspicion raised by the...
