WASHINGTON (AP) — Jurors in the Chandra Levy murder trial have concluded a third day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

Ingmar Guandique (gwahn-DEE-kay) is facing two counts of murder for the 2001 disappearance and death of Washington intern. Her case became a sensation after an apparent romantic relationship with then Rep. Gary Condit, D-Calif., was revealed. Police don't think Condit was involved in her death.

The jury on Friday deliberated for more than four hours and sent out a note asking for the legal definition of an assault. Under one of the murder counts, jurors must find that Levy was assaulted to obtain a first-degree murder conviction.

The judge told them any physical injury, no matter how small, could be considered an assault.

Deliberations resume Monday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jurors in the Chandra Levy murder trial are beginning a third day of deliberations.

Ingmar Guandique (gwahn-DEE-kay) is facing murder charges in the 2001 disappearance and death of Levy. The case made headlines when she was romantically linked with Gary Condit. The former California congressman was initially the main suspect, although police no longer believe he was involved.

Prosecutors say Levy's death fits the pattern of other crimes committed by Guandique in 2001. The defense says Guandique has become a scapegoat for a botched investigation.

The jury began deliberating Wednesday and has deliberated for more than 11 hours over two days so far in a trial that has stretched on for a month.
