The case of the missing Washington intern devastated a family, destroyed a congressman's career and sparked a media frenzy, but the question of who killed Chandra Levy went unanswered for nearly a decade until a jury on Monday convicted a Salvadoran illegal immigrant of first-degree murder.
Former Rep. Gary A. Condit, the California Democrat whose political career was ruined in the wake of the disappearance of D.C. intern Chandra Levy, testified Monday that investigators in the case tried to railroad him.
His attorneys, public defenders Santha Sonenberg and Maria Hawilo, said investigators hopelessly botched the case and Guandique was an easy scapegoat.
"They can't fix failures," Ms. Hawilo said during opening arguments. "They can't undo their mistakes."
