WASHINGTON — The Salvadoran man convicted of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy nearly a decade ago was sentenced to 60 years in prison, a term that could keep him behind bars the rest of his life.

Ingmar Guandique would not be released from prison until he was at least about 80 years old, assuming he lives that long, said District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher on Friday. The judge, who called Guandique a dangerous person and sexual predator, said the sentence would ensure he was not a danger to the community if he is released.
