A Judge on Friday sentenced Ingmar Guandique, 29, the man convicted of killing former Washington intern Chandra Levy, to 60 years in prison.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher sentenced Guandique, 29, to 60 years on each account he was convicted of last November, including a count of murder with kidnapping and a second charge of murder with attempted robbery. The sentences would be served concurrently.
He will not be eligible for parole until at least age 80.
Prosecutors had sought life in prison. Guandique was convicted last November despite a lack of forensic evidence such as a murder weapon or eye witness.
Prosecutors offered testimony from a former prison mate who said Guandique confessed to the attack. Two women also testified that they were attacked by Guandique in 2001, about the same time that Levy went missing.
Guandique was first arrested in February 2009 when serving a 10-year sentence for the attacks on the women.
Levy's skull was found in a Washington D.C. park in May of 2002 more than a year after she was last seen. Other remains were found later, including clothing said to be hers near the side of a ravine.
The case ended the career of Rep. Gary Condit of California, who said he had a close relationship with Levy. Friends, family and police said Condit was romantically involved with the intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington D.C.
Police never called him a suspect.
