WASHINGTON — A man accused of killing federal intern Chandra Levy has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges.
Ingmar Guandique, 27, was arraigned Wednesday in District of Columbia Superior Court on six counts, including murder, kidnapping and attempted sexual abuse. He pleaded not guilty to all counts.
A judge set a two-week jury trial for Jan. 27. A status hearing is set for July 31.
Levy disappeared in May 2001, and her remains were found in a D.C. park a year later.
Guandique has been serving a 10-year sentence for two other attacks in the same park.
The case was blamed for destroying the political career of former U.S. Rep. Gary Condit of California, who was romantically linked to Levy but was never a suspect.
