Guandique won't take the stand
Ingmar Guandique, the man charged with killing Chandra Levy, will not testify in his trial in D.C. Superior Court.
It is relatively rare for defendants to testify in their own defense, so Guandique's decision is not a surprise.
The news came Monday morning on what is probably the last day of testimony in the trial.
With the jury out of the courtroom, Judge Gerald I. Fisher asked if Guandique understood his right not to testify and whether he had in fact decided not to testify.
"Yes," Guandique said in Spanish.
Closing arguments are planned for Tuesday.
