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 washingtonpost.com on May 6.
