Judge Blocks Use of Shocking Interview in Levy Trial

View Comments ()




    Prosecutors in the Chandra Levy murder trial will not be able to use shocking statements made by her accused killer.

    Ingmar Guandique revealed that he sometimes has trouble controlling himself when he spots someone alone with a possession of value in a secluded area. It was during a pre-sentencing interview for a burglary case back in 2001.

    Superior Court Judge Gerald I. Fisher ruled Wednesday that since prosecutors have other evidence of Guandique’s thinking, they have no “compelling need” to use these statements.

    Guandique has pleaded not guilty to the killing of Chandra Levy.
