An inmate has testified that his former cellmate, who is on trial for murdering Washington intern Chandra Levy, confessed to the killing.

Ingmar Guandique, a Salvadoran immigrant, is charged with the murder and attempted sexual assault of Levy in 2001. Levy's disappearance became international news after she was romantically linked with then Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif). He was once the main suspect, but police no longer believe he was involved.

Today, inmate and former gang member, Armando Morales, testified Guandique told him he had intended to rob Levy--not kill her--and denied sexually assaulting Levy.

Morales says Guandique was concerned that other inmates believed he was a rapist because he had been linked to the Levy investigation.
