An El Salvadorean immigrant has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for the 2001 murder of Chandra Levy

Ingmar Guandique was convicted of first-degree murder in November 2010 in the killing of Levy, 24. Her remains were found in 2002 in Rock Creek Park in Washington DC more than a year after she disappeared. Prosecutors had asked the judge for a life prison sentence, saying Guandique had shown no remorse and had a history of violent crimes. Police did not arrest Guandique until 2009. The 29-year-old had been serving a 10-year sentence for attacking two female joggers in the park and had reportedly spoken about killing Levy.
