Man convicted of killing DC intern to be sentenced

The title alone suggests a run of the mill murder. You would never know they were talking about Chandra Levy. Remember all the hoopla this story garnered. I'm not a Gary Condit fan he got what he deserved as far as his career in politics goes. But he wasn't a murderer. The real story here is once the MSM discovered he was here illegally (just like the story below) they dropped it like a hot potato. It never occurred to them if this piece of crap was stopped at the border, or deported, she would still be alive. Ironically he was charged for her murder while serving time in prison for attacking female joggers in the park in the same time frame Levy disappeared.

WASHINGTON -- The man convicted of killing D.C. intern Chandra Levy nearly a decade ago is scheduled to be sentenced.

Ingmar Guandique faces a minimum 30 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life when he's sentenced Friday.

In November, a jury convicted Guandique of first-degree murder in Levy's 2001 disappearance and death, despite a lack of witnesses and no DNA evidence linking him to the crime.

Levy's disappearance became a national sensation after she was romantically linked to then California Rep. Gary Condit. Police initially focused on Condit as a suspect. But after Levy's remains were found in Rock Creek Park, police shifted their focus to Guandique, who was already serving a prison sentence for attacking female joggers in the park in the same time frame Levy disappeared.
