A jury convicted Ingmar Guandique of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy. Now his lawyers are requesting a new trial, arguing there were problems with the first one.

UPDATE: The second day of deliberations ended without a verdict and will continue tomorrow.

ORIGINAL POST: Jurors got a late start this morning due to new security measures at the courthouse on their second day of deliberations in the trial of the man charged with murdering Chandra Levy. Ingmar Guandique is charged with killing Levy a decade ago while she was exercising in Rock Creek Park.

Jurors spent more than five hours weighing evidence yesterday. At one point, they sent a note to the judge, asking for a defense exhibit -- it was a picture of Guandique taken by his girlfriend. It shows the defendant in Rock Creek Park at around the time Levy went missing.

Guandique faces two counts of felony murder, but jurors can convict Guandique on the lesser charge of second degree murder.
