Levi Aron Ruled 'Fit' To Stand Trial For The Murder Of Leiby Kletzky!

The accused killer’s lawyers are now trying to get the trial moved and are STILL considering using his ‘insanity’ as a defense.

Levi Aron has been told he WILL stand trial on charges he kidnapped, murdered and dismembered Leiby Kletzky after the 8-year-old got lost on his way home from a summer camp on July 11.

Aron confessed to cops after body parts were found in his freezer and a dumpster near his Brooklyn, New York home — but pleaded NOT GUILTY, pending a psychiatric test to establish if he was competent to stand trial.

The results of that test were announced in court on August 4 — and the trial WILL go ahead.

Aron, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, remained silent throughout the hearing — which was attended by members of Leiby’s hasidic jewish community.

Speaking outside court, his lawyers revealed they’re still convinced the accused killer is suffering from a psychiatric condition — and will request further testing and evaluation.

Attorney Pierre Bazile told reporters, “It is not a rendering on sanity or insanity. We believe him to have some psychiatric disorders.”

Aron is due back in court on September 19, when Bazile will ask for the trial to be moved away from Brooklyn — claiming he has no chance of being judged fairly there.

He explains, “He may not be able to get a fair trial in Brooklyn because the community’s rancor has been riled, it has been so stirred up against the defendant.”

Let’s hope justice is found for poor little Leiby.
