Arrest made in Chandra Levy murder

How long will it be before some right-wing nutcase exploits the arrest as an excuse to attack immigrants?

A jailed laborer from El Salvador has been charged with first-degree murder in the 2001 slaying of federal intern Chandra Levy, authorities said Tuesday.

The suspect, Ingmar Guandique, is serving a 10-year prison sentence in California for two assaults in Washington's Rock Creek Park that occurred around the time of Levy's disappearance. Levy's remains were found in the park.

The publicity surrounding the Levy case was largely a result of her connection to then-Rep. Gary Condit, D-California. Condit and Levy had an affair and police questioned Condit many times in connection with the murder.
It wouldn't be the first time.
