Levi Aron Indicted for Murder of 8-Year-Old Leiby Kletzky

Levi Aron, the Kensington man who confessed to murdering Leiby Kletzky last week, has been indicted for murder. Aron confessed to smothering the boy using a towel, but a police autopsy shows that Kletzky had drugs in his body at the time of his death.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes announced that, “He (Aron) caused the child to ingest large numbers of drugs.”

Among the drugs found in Kletzky’s corpse were Tylenol and three different types of prescription drugs, including a painkiller, a muscle relaxer and an anti-psychotic medicine, according to the autopsy report.
The city medical examiner stated that he believes the boy died of acute intoxication, and not suffocation.
