WASHINGTON — Jurors are to begin their fourth day of deliberations in the trial of a man accused in the slaying of Washington intern Chandra Levy.

Ingmar Guandique (gwahn-DEE-kay) is charged with murder in Levy's death nearly a decade ago.

Levy disappeared in 2001. Her case drew attention when she was romantically linked to then-Congressman Gary Condit. The California Democrat was initially a suspect but police no longer think he was involved.

Prosecutors say Levy's death fits a pattern of attacks by Guandique in 2001 in Washington's Rock Creek Park. That's where her remains were found.

Defense lawyers say the Salvadoran immigrant has become a scapegoat for a botched investigation.
