By Meymo Lyons The man accused of killing federal intern Chandra Levy in 2001 has been charged with threatening a witness in the case. A superseding indictment filed Wednesday in D.C. Superior Court charges Ingmar Guandique with obstructing justice, threatening to injure a person and conspiracy.

Guandique was already charged with first-degree murder and other charges in connection with Levy's death. According to the new charges, Guandique wrote a note from jail threatening to kill the witness or the witness's family and had someone deliver it to the witness.

The indictment says a second threatening letter was mailed to the witness by someone involved in the alleged conspiracy.

Guandique was charged in April in Levy's death. Levy disappeared in May 2001 and her remains were found a year later in Rock Creek Park.
