A grand jury on Wednesday (July 20) indicted the 35-year-old on a total of eight counts in the murder of the 8-year-old Brooklyn boy.

Leiby Kletzky was found dead last week, two days after he went missing on his way home from a Orthodox Jewish day camp near his home in Brooklyn, New York. Yesterday, an autopsy of his body revealed that Levi Aron had given Leiby a deadly combination of drugs, including a muscle relaxant, an anti-psychotic drug and two pain medications, before smothering him to death.

Aron has been indicted on a total of eight counts — two counts of first-degree murder, three counts of second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree kidnapping and one count of second-degree kidnapping. He faces the maximum penalty of life in prison without parole.

He previously pleaded not guilty when he was arraigned on July 14 and was sent for psychiatric evaluation after his attorney claimed he’d been hearing voices.

Prosecutors say Aron confessed to kidnapping and killing Leiby, hiding body parts in his freezer and a nearby dumpster. In leaked excerpts from his confession, Aron said, “I’m sorry for the hurt that I caused.”
