Guandique cellmates expected on stand
Jurors in the Chandra Levy murder trial are expected to hear from former cellmates of Ingmar Guandique, the man charged with killing the D.C. intern in 2001.
The men have told authorities Guandique admitted to them that he strangled, raped and killed Levy.
Guandique's attorneys say the witnesses are fabricating the conversation with Guandique in exchange for favors from the government.
Scientific experts testified Wednesday at the Chandra Levy murder trial that there is no DNA or forensic evidence linking defendant Ingmar Guandique to the crime scene in Rock Creek Park where Levy's remains were found.
Five government experts testified that numerous tests and follow-up tests showed no evidence of Guandique's fingerprints, blood or semen on Levy's tights, panties, sports bra, University of Southern California T-shirt or any of the other items found in the park on May 22, 2002, a year after Levy disappeared.
But one forensic expert confirmed that there were two positive DNA matches found on Levy's belongings. Read more on this story on washingtonpost.com.
