Levi Aron as agreed to plead guilty to the murder and kidnapping of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky. Aron, who dismembered the boy, will be sentenced to 40 years to life in prison, the NY Daily News reports.
“There is a deal,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who represents the Borough Park neighborhood told the News on behlaf of the Kletzky family.
“The family has to live with this for the rest of their lives. They want to bring this to a conclusion,” said Hikind. “The idea of having a trial was not something that they wanted to go through. They want to make sure that there is justice,” Hikind said.
Prosecutors and defense lawyers refused to comment.
Leiby’s father Nachman Kletzky has reportedly been discussing the plea with leaders in the Jewish community. “They don't want to have any more open wounds,” a fmaily friend said.
