The D.C. police department issued a warrant Tuesday in the May 2001 murder of Chandra Levy, the intern found dead in Rock Creek Park in Northwest.

The much anticipated update follows an announcement Feb. 22 by the Levy family that police told them an arrest was imminent.

Miss Levy’s disappearance eight years ago made national deadlines after investigators learn the 24-year-old Modesto, Calif., native was having an affair with then-Rep Gary Condit, California Democrat.

The warrant was issued for Ingmar Guandique, an illegal Salvadoran immigrant serving a 10-year sentence in a federal prison in California for attacking two female joggers in separate assaults in 2001 in the same park. He will be charged upon transfer to the District with first-degree felony murder.

“Justice has been served,” D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty said.

Miss Levy’s remains were found by a hiker on a park path on May 22, 2002.
