  • 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...

    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. ...

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.

    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.

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...

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.

    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...

The Washington Post spent a year reconstructing the disappearance of Chandra Levy and the investigation into her death. Reporters interviewed police officials, investigators and suspects, many for the first time, and obtained details about dozens of previously unknown private...

    Attorney Mark E. Goidell once represented rapper Sean Combs, known at the time as "Puffy." He defended a New York man convicted of double murder. He defended a woman who falsely accused a co-worker of sexually abusing mentally disabled patients. But he has decided to no longer represent former Rep. Gary Condit of Ceres. Goidell wants a federal judge to let him out of a defamation case he brought on Condit's behalf. Facing potential sanctions for filing an allegedly frivolous lawsuit against author Dominick Dunne, Goidell this week said the case never should have been brought. "The defamation claim in...

    Bucking party leadership and most of her congressional colleagues, House Democratic Whip-elect Rep. Nancy Pelosi has endorsed Rep. Gary Condit for re-election -- a move that has "thrilled" the embattled incumbent but could spell headaches for Democrats. "I endorsed Gary for re-election a long time ago," Pelosi of San Francisco said in a statement released by her office yesterday. "However, I have not spoken to any member encouraging them to support Gary or to discourage them from supporting his opponent (state Assemblyman Dennis Cardoza)." She called the election "a matter between Gary and his constituents." With less than two months...

    WASHINGTON — Susan Levy tried the tango. She rides horses. She exercises, furiously. She sings her heart out; and still, with the dawn, all distractions fall away and she comes back to remembering. "I wake up every morning," Susan said, "and the first thing I think is, 'My daughter isn't here.'" Chandra Levy was last seen in the nation's capital on April 30, 2001. Eventually, her skeletal remains were found in Rock Creek Park. Investigators say they have identified a "person of interest," and they continue to conduct interviews, but her murder defies solution. What come unbidden now are ghostly...

    Commission claims two misspent campaign funds.A state agency is suing former Rep. Gary Condit's children for $2.4 million because they allegedly misspent $226,000 in funds the congressman originally raised to advance his career. The Fair Political Practices Commission filed suit against Chad and Cadee Condit this week in Sacramento County Superior Court. The lawsuit says they enriched themselves with political action committee funds that should have been used for political, legislative or government purposes. The agency alleges they paid themselves $226,000 for work they were not qualified to undertake. It also says the two did not produce the services for...
