'Preppie killer' will go back to jail

August 12, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The "preppie killer," who served 15 years behind bars for strangling a woman in Central Park during what he said was rough sex, is headed back to prison for 19 years.

Robert Chambers pleaded guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance and assault on a police officer. He and his girlfriend were arrested in October 2007 in an undercover sting at their Manhattan apartment on charges of dealing cocaine. His girlfriend pleaded guilty last December.

Chambers, now 41, became tabloid fodder in 1986 after the death of Jennifer Levin, 18, a graduate of the exclusive Baldwin School. He pleaded guilty in 1988 to manslaughter and was released from prison in 2003 after serving the maximum 15 years behind bars.
