Ingmar Guandique, Chandra Levy Murder Suspect, Due In D.C. Court

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON — A judge has decided to keep the trial of a man charged in the killing of federal intern Chandra Levy in the District of Columbia.

Attorneys for 28-year-old Ingmar Guandique (gwan-DEE'-kay) had argued he would not get a fair trial in Washington because of the extensive publicity. But Judge Gerald Fisher denied a motion Friday to change the venue of Guandique's trial in October.

Levy disappeared in May 2001 and her remains were found a year later in Rock Creek Park. Guandique faces a first-degree murder charge in her death.

The judge still has to rule on another defense request to suppress statements Guandique made to authorities in 2008.
