Man charged in Chandra Levy's killing to appear in court

A man charged in the killing of federal intern Chandra Levy is scheduled to appear in court.

Twenty-eight-year-old Ingmar Guandique has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other counts in Levy's death. She disappeared in 2001 and her remains were found a year later in Rock Creek Park.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald I. Fisher is expected to consider several motions during a Friday morning hearing.

Guandique's attorneys have requested to change the venue, claiming extensive media coverage will make it difficult for him to get a fair trial in Washington.

Defense attorneys have said that there's no scientific evidence linking their client to her death.

Post reporters Scott Higham and Sari Horwitz, who recently wrote a book about the case, took reader questions on on May 6.
