Robert Levy said he and his wife, Susan, favor a life sentence for the killer. "If someone is executed, they really don't suffer too much," he said. "Yes, with no TV, no movies, no weightlifting," said Susan Levy, adding that she would attend the murder trial. "Someone who does murder like that shouldn't have any comforts."
Investigators had interviewed Condit, with whom Levy reportedly was having an affair. They also had looked at Ingmar Guandique, 27, a Salvadoran immigrant who has denied any involvement in Levy's disappearance and killing. Guandique was convicted of attacking two women in Rock Creek Park shortly after Levy disappeared. Levy's remains were found in the park, where she is believed to have gone jogging before her disappearance.
The 24-year-old dropped from sight in May 2001. She was wearing jogging clothes when she left her apartment, and her remains were found in Washington's Rock Creek Park about a year later. Suspicions that Condit had killed Levy ended his congressional career.
