WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) More than nine years after Chandra Levy's disappearance generated headlines around the world, the trial of the man police believe is responsible for her death is scheduled to begin, with jury selection scheduled to begin Monday morning.

And the man who has been inextricably linked to the young Washington intern's disappearance, fallen Congressman Gary Condit, expects to be called to testify, according to his spokesman.

Ingmar Guandique is charged with murder, kidnapping and other counts. Authorities say he attacked Levy while she was jogging alone in Rock Creek Park in May 2001.

Condit's political career imploded after he was romantically linked to the woman. His spokesman says he will testify if called but that he has not been supoenaed yet.

Authorities no longer believe Condit had anything to do with her death.

Bill Miller, a spokesman for the prosecutors' office, declined comment on the case and whether Condit will be called as a witness, citing a gag order issued earlier this month.
