In November, a jury found Ingmar Guandique first-degree murder of Levy’s 2001 disappearance and death, although no witnesses and no DNA evidence linking the crime.
Levy’s disappearance became a national sensation after an affair with Rep. Gary Condit then. Police initially focused on Condit as a suspect.

Condit’s political career disintegrated.
The Superior Court also rejected the request for a new trial Guandique. His lawyers had argued Guandique should receive a new trial because the jurors shared notes wrong to reach a verdict. They also argued prosecutors improperly appeal to the emotions of the jury and the facts that were not part of the evidence presented at trial to make a closing argument graph.
In response, prosecutors said that sharing the notes of the jurors, if that happened, was as a violation of conditions that do not substantially alter the outcome.
Prosecutors had requested a sentence of life imprisonment, arguing that Guandique shown no remorse and had a history of violence against women. They said Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, fled his village in this country as a teenager because he was suspected of attacking a woman with a knife.
