Levy defendant assaulted witness: Prosecutors
One of the government's key witnesses in its case against the man charged in the kidnapping and slaying of federal intern Chandra Levy was sexually assaulted by the defendant while the two were in prison, prosecutors told a D.C. Superior Court judge Monday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Haines said Ingmar Guandique sexually assaulted a witness who will testify that Guandique admitted committing a "murder" in Washington, D.C., by grabbing a woman and then torturing and killing her.
Guandique then allegedly told the inmate that he "tied her down" and then "hog-tied" her before the sexual assault, Haines said.
Haines did not say whether Guandique mentioned Levy by name to the inmate.
