Closing arguments under way in Chandra Levy murder trial

Closing arguments began Tuesday in the trial of a man charged in the 2001 killing of Washington intern Chandra Levy.

"She's been waiting nine years for justice," said prosecutor Amanda Haines, holding up for the jury a poster-sized photograph of the smiling young
woman. "It's been nine years, but you need to say the words 'Ingman Guandique is guilty.'"

The dead woman's mother was in the spectators' gallery, and at times looked close to tears as prosecutors brought out her daughter's clothing, found at the crime scene in 2002.

    2nd saddest thing about this case is that he may not get the death penalty.

    Saddest thing about this case is that one man was already tried and convicted by her parent and the media

    @Junior. The suspect has a proven history of molesting women. He just went too far with Chandra. It's people like you that think OJ Simpson was not guilty. And we all know where that murderer is now. Oh, but wait, let's not have the parents and media convict OJ so fast, nor this Salvadorian.

    @cesar. Fact of the matter is, whether he molested a woman, or not...he was portrayed as a murderer by the media wrongfully. Its people like YOU that have to stop believing everything they read and than go ranting on blogs like ur an expert on the subject. How would u feel if u were branded a murderer by the court of public opinion? Bet ur post would read a bit more factual and less one sided and un-informed.

    @Drew. Oh, I didn't know you were his defense lawyer. You are on the losing side. Your little buddy,Ingman, after being found guilty will pay his dues.

    I feel that I live in an insane world sometimes. Here are 3 Americans sticking up for an illegal alien who is also a member of the ruthless gang MS 13. Unbelievable. Ignorance never ceases to amaze me.
