Levy death trial off until Monday

By Henri E. Cauvin

The jury in the trial of the man charged with killing Chandra Levy concluded its third day of deliberations late Friday afternoon.

The panel sent its first substantive question this afternoon, asking the judge to provide a definition of assault as it relates to kidnapping.

Kidnapping is the basis for one of the first-degree felony murder charges facing the defendant, Ingmar Guandique.

But after the judge responded to the jurors' request, there was no further contact before the judge, Gerald I. Fisher, dismissed the jury shortly before 5 p.m.

The jurors are to resume deliberations on Monday morning.
