The eight-year-old battled with Levi Aron as the 35-year-old smothered him with a towel, police say.

Cops allege marks found on Levi Aron‘s arms and wrists suggest Leiby Kletzky resisted and struggled with his killer, before he was suffocated to death. What a brave boy.

“Based on marks on the defendant it appears that there was some sort of struggle,” New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly reveals.

Aron has been charged with kidnapping and killing Leiby.

He confessed soon after his arrest, but entered a not guilty plea when he was arraigned on Thursday — pending further hearings and a psychiatric evaluation.

Commissioner Kelly summed up this horrible crime well, adding, “It defies all logic and I think that is what makes it so terribly disturbing. To be killed in this manner is just heartbreaking. It is baffling.”

We agree.
