Chandra Levy's convicted killer is requesting a new trial, claiming there is new information on a key witness. The hearings, however, will be closed amid safety concerns for the witness. UPI shared the latest details on Feb. 8.
After years of uncertainty over what happened to Chandra Levy, Ingmar Guandique was arrested and convicted of Levy's murder. He was sentenced to 60 years in prison after his 2010 trial concluded. Guandique, 30, is Salvadoran and was convicted of first-degree murder. The disappearance of Chandra Levy in 2001 kept the nation on alert amid mysterious accusations and tawdry details.
The prosecution has requested that the hearings remain closed, and the attorneys involved are under a gag order to keep the details from reaching the public. Many are curious just what the situation is here, but for now people will need to stay tuned for further developments. The trial of Ingmar Guandique lasted eight weeks, and at the end people were glad to see justice found for Chandra Levy and her family. Many hope that this new alleged evidence doesn't create a big mess for those involved who believe the right man is behind bars.
