‘Brooklyn Butcher’ Levi Aron Will Die In Prison For Murdering 8-Year-Old Leiby Kletzky

The infamous ‘Brooklyn Butcher,’ who kidnapped a young boy on his way home from summer camp, will face 40 years to life in prison under a plea deal. Levi admitted to brutally killing the boy and dismembering his body in July 2011, and is expected to plead guilty in court on August 9.

Leiby Kletzky, an 8-year-old boy from the Hasidic neighborhood of Borough Park in Brooklyn, NY, was walking home alone for the first time after he begged his parents to let him take the 7-block treck by himself. On his way back from summer camp, the boy got lost and asked a store clerk, Levi Aron, then 35, for directions.

Levi then kidnapped the boy and took him to his cousin’s wedding, then back to his apartment in Brooklyn, he told detectives after his arrest. After he saw fliers for the missing boy, he panicked and smothered Leiby, killing him.

The monster then cut up his body and left his feet in the freezer, but threw away the rest of his dismembered body parts in the nearby trash.

Leiby’s family is relieved that a plea deal was made, because they did not want to go through the agonizing trial process.

“They very much were supportive if a deal could be reached, because the last thing they wanted was to have to live through the horror of those three days,” Dov Hikind, the state assemblyman who is close with the boy’s family and acting as a spokesman, said, according to the New York Times.

Levi faces at least 40 years to life in jail, and will likely die in prison.

After such a tragic story, we’re happy to see justice being served. What do YOU think HollyMoms?
