Chandra Levy's accused killer on trial Monday

The man accused of murdering Washington intern Chandra Levy (left) is set to go on trail Monday, nine years after the killing that turned a spotlight on former Rep. Gary Condit (D-Calif.).

Ingmar Guandique (right), who emigrated to the U.S. illegally from El Salvador, was charged with murdering Levy in 2009 and his trial is expected to bring Condit to the witness stand. 

After rumors of a relationship between Levy and Condit, the former congressman became a prime suspect in her disappearance. Condit denied having an affair with Levy. 

Despite their suspicions at the time, authorities were never able to tie Condit to her disappearance and the former lawmaker has long denied any connection to her disappearance.    

A spokesman for the former congressman told the Associated Press that Condit intends to cooperate fully with authorities during the trial and that he anticipates being called as a witness. 

Guandique's attorneys are expected to argue that the investigation into Levy's murder was flawed. 

While it's not clear how large of a role the former Congressman might play in the trial, it's sure to garner significant media attention, propelling the case, and Condit, back into the news.
