Levy Homicide Suspect Gets Day Out of Jail

Suspect's writing samples needed

The man charged with killing Chandra Levy is out of jail today. But not to worry, it’s just for the day, and he’ll be supervised the whole time.

Ingmar Guandique was let out of the D.C. Jail to provide authorities with a handwriting sample.

Prosecutors said they have notes or letters they believe Guandique wrote. Those writings include threats to witnesses and an admission about the murder of Levy in 2001. Guandique pleaded guilty last December to charges that he threatened a witness in the case.

He must be returned to jail by 5 p.m. today.
