Levy death trial break until Wednesday
There will be no proceedings in the trial of Ingmar Guandique, the man charged with killing Chandra Levy in 2001, until Wednesday.
Judge Gerald I. Fisher will hold proceedings on other cases Friday, and the court is scheduled to hold employee training sessions Monday and Tuesday.
For the first time in eight days of trial, Ingmar Guandique was linked directly to the Chandra Levy slaying when a former prison cellmate testified Thursday that Guandique admitted killing the federal intern.
Guandique said he was high on drugs and crouching behind bushes in Rock Creek Park when he saw Levy walking alone and wearing a waist pouch, according to the testimony of the cellmate, Armando Morales. Guandique needed money and he jumped Levy, Morales said.
Morales, a five-time convicted felon, captivated D.C. Superior Court with his testimony. Although the account was secondhand, it was the first telling of Levy's final moments.
