Trial begins in Chandra Levy murder case

Opening statements began Monday in the trial of a man charged in the 2001 killing of Washington intern Chandra Levy.

Authorities believe Ingmar Guandique attacked Levy, 24, as she jogged in a park and then killed her.

In her opening statement, Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Haines told the jury that the prosecution will rely in part on the testimony of two other women who were attacked in the same park just weeks after Levy.

Those two managed to escape, but Levy was "running into a dream, into a nightmare," Haines said, "because she's never coming out of the park."

    I feel bad for the poor guy they wrongfully accuses for so long it just proves how flawed the justice system is an how it's almost impossible to take the American legal system seriously when all they do is blackmail you even the innocent ones with outlandish tickets and fines

    This case would be so great if the prisoner testifing was lying. Unrighteousness to convict these evil gang members would be sweet jvstice. Another pyscho out of the society of decent human beings.

    Floria, we know what you're about. El Salvadoreian gangs are the worse kind of trash on the planet. Mindless ignorant animals. The Italian Cosa Nostra is disgusted because the El Salvies are a disgrace the name of gang members world wide.

    El Salvadorean Gang members should have surgeries performed on them that would leave them sterilized. males and females and their parents.
