LEVI ARON: Police Sort Through Suspect’s Account as He Pleads Not Guilty in Killing!
By JAMES BARRON and AL BAKER / Published: July 14, 2011.
For a couple of hours on Monday night,Leiby Kletzky, 8, sat in a car outside a catering hall in Rockland County, N.Y.; the windows were rolled down, if the man suspected in his killing is to be believed.
More than 400 people were at a wedding inside the hall, including the man who had driven Leiby there, Levi Aron, 35. No one apparently noticed the little boy sitting there on the warm night. And no one knew then that Borough Park, Brooklyn, was mobilizing to find him.
Leiby was 35 miles from home, where his world was defined by family and religion and community and Mr. Aron’s by dead-end jobs and marriages that fell apart. They encountered each other on a sidewalk in Borough Park, one a lost child who needed directions, the other an adult from nearby Kensington who indicated he could help.
On Thursday, three days after they met on the sidewalk, the police were trying to sort through Mr. Aron’s account of how he had met the boy, and what had happened during the undetermined time that they spent together before the boy was suffocated and dismembered.
Mr. Aron appeared in Brooklyn Criminal Court and pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping and murdering Leiby. Judge William Miller ordered him held without bail and said he would have to undergo a psychological evaluation after his lawyer said Mr. Aron might have mental problems.
