Chandra Levy Jury Selection Starts Today

Play associated audio

In the District, jury selection for the murder trial of the man accused of killing federal intern Chandra Levy in 2001 gets underway this morning.

Ingmar Guandique is accused of attacking 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 at the time of her disappearance, had anything to do with her death. A Condit spokesman says the former congressman, who's writing a book about his experience in the case, expects to be called to testify.

While jury selection starts today, opening arguments in the case may not come for another week.
