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