Second attacked jogger expected to testify in Levy death trial

Keith L. Alexander

In the second day of testimony in the Chandra Levy murder trial Tuesday, prosecutors are expected to call the second female jogger that Ingmar Guandique admitted to attacking in Rock Creek Park around the same time Levy disappeared.

Christy Wiegand could take take the witness stand in D.C. Superior Court Tuesday to testify how Guandique attacked her on July 1, 2001.

In 2002, Guandique was sentenced to 10 years in prison for attacking Wiegand and Halle Shilling on two separate occasions during the spring and summer of 2001. Schilling tearfully testified Monday.

Prosecutors say Guandique attacked Levy, 24, on May 1, 2001, when she disappeared. They also said the attacks on Wiegand and Shilling were part of a pattern of attacks on women in the park. Levy's remains were found a year later in the park.

Levy's disappearance gripped the region and the country, especially after the Bureau of Prisons intern's affair with then-Rep. Gary A. Condit (D-Calif.) became public. Condit is also listed as a possible witness in the trial.
