WASHINGTON (AP) - More than nine years after the disappearance of Washington intern Chandra Levy generated headlines around the world, the man accused of killing her is finally scheduled to stand trial.
Ingmar Guandique is accused of murder and kidnapping among other charges. Authorities allege he attacked Levy while she was jogging alone in Rock Creek Park in May 2001.
For months after her disappearance, police focused their attention on then-Congressman Gary Condit, a California Democrat. Authorities no longer believe Condit - who was romantically linked to Levy - had anything to do with her death.
The trial starts Monday with jury selection, though opening arguments may not come for at least a week. A Condit spokesman says the former congressman expects to be called to testify.
