Man Charged With Killing Chandra Levy Won't Face Retrial

WASHINGTON – Prosecutors will no longer seek a retrial of Ingmar Guandique, the man who was charged in the death of Chandra Levy, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia announced Thursday.

“Today, in the interests of justice and based on recent unforeseen developments that were investigated over the past week, the Office moved to dismiss the case charging Ingmar Guandique with the May 2001 murder of Chandra Levy,” the office’s public information officer, Bill Miller, said in a release.

In a statement, the office said it can no longer prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Guandique killed Levy.
